Campfire Navy Strength Gin 50cl
Whilst the botanicals remain anchored to that of Campfire London Dry Gin, we have tweaked the recipe and raised the alcohol content to bring you a bigger, bolder expression. The perfect storm… in a bottle. Winner of Gin of the Year, Navy category at Craft Distillers 2017. 57% ABV
Why so strong you ask? Navy Strength spirits were introduced to pass the British Royal Navy’s potentially explosive proofing test. Simply put, if gunpowder soaked in gin still burned it indicated that there was sufficient alcohol in the gin. Gin with less than 57% alcohol or 100% proof would prevent the gunpowder from igniting and would be rejected by the Navy as it was not deemed to be strong enough. We distill this fine gin in small batches at Puddingstone Distillery. Our desire to ensure delivery of the best product possible means we carry out every part of the process, from selecting and preparing botanicals, distilling according to our own unique process, resting (the gin and us) to bottling and labelling. Then and only then we release each of these bottled treasures from our Chilterns based distillery so they may begin their own adventure.
For a tonic pairing our recommendation would be Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic but for the more adventurous try this amazing concoction of Campfire Navy, port and apple juice – the Red Admiral cocktail.
Distilled to a London Dry style this gin contains no added sugar.
