Campfire Navy Strength Gin


Whilst the ten botanicals in Campfire Navy Strength Gin remain anchored to that of our Campfire London Dry Gin, we’ve tweaked the ratios and raised the alcohol content to deliver a bigger, bolder expression. Juniper, citrus, caramelised fruit and peppery undertones define this robust, incredibly smooth multi-award winning gin. The perfect storm… in a bottle. 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 Campfire Navy Strength 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.

Recommended serves

For a tonic pairing our recommendations would be Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic, Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic and Franklin & Sons Rosemary and Black Olive Tonic but for the more adventurous try this amazing concoction of Campfire Navy Strength Gin, port and apple juice – the Red Admiral cocktail. Garnish a G&T with a slice of fresh grapefruit or a sprig of rosemary.

3 reviews for Campfire Navy Strength Gin

  1. Dan S

    Very smooth and doesn’t have that alcohol burn you get with cheaper navy gins. Has a juniper forward favour

  2. Peter Westbury (verified owner)

    This is my go to gin. I love it. It’s my Friday evening (weekend has arrived) treat.

  3. Gary bentham

    I bought this just to try, but was really impressed with the botanicals it holds. I love a gin with citric undertones and a peppery aftertaste, and this has it in perfect balance. One of the best gins I have had and will be buying g quite a bit more.
