PLEASE NOTE: Our award-winning Navy Strength Gin has changed to a 500mL bottle format this February, in line with the 10th tax excise increase since we launched this high-proof gin in 2014. Instead of raising the retail cost to $110, we have reduced the bottle size and priced it at $90 to keep this favourite at an accessible level for our gin fans.
We first released this luscious gin in 2014, after experimenting with some exclusive batches of a high-proof gin for the Gin Palace. We decided to add fresh 'Judy's Everbearing’ native finger limes in the botanical basket, with some fresh ginger instead of our beautiful organic oranges, giving our Navy Strength Gin its signature power and intensity.
The finger limes highlight the Asian spices like coriander and star anise, and are complemented by the fresh ginger. Then turmeric adds weight to the palate and a fresh but earthy quality, not unlike dill.
The resulting gin has lifted aromatics of lime curd, pine needles, and fragrant spices with a vanilla character which pulls it all together. The palate is intense - sweet and juicy - but it is still very clean.
And we're very pleased to announce that our Navy Strength Gin was awarded Best Gin at the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition 2016, and has four times been awarded Master status at the Global Gin Masters (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
