Our Navy Strength Gin is made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin. The difference is water. We dilute our Navy Strength Gin to 57% (of course) while Hernö Gin is diluted down to 40,5%. The difference regarding the sense of aroma and taste is however very clear. The result is a gin with bolder juniper, coriander, citrus and overall richer flavour.
The British royal navy demanded stronger gin when traditional gin strength ruined the gunpowder, which wouldn’t ignite after being soaked by spilled gin.
Hernö Navy Strength Gin was released on the 1st of April 2013. Later the same year it was awarded with double Master medals at the Global Gin Masters and another Master 2014.
TASTING NOTES: Nose: Bold juniper with fragrant citrus, fresh and peppery notes. Palate: Sappy with crisp juniper followed by spicy citrus and spring floral notes. A lot of flavour with sippable texture and a little warmth. Finish: Spicy and peppery with a mellow warmth, a long and lingering, yet smooth, finish.
