Process: Distilled with juniper, coriander, angelica, orris root and cassia, with new botanicals: elderflower and vanilla to match flavor notes of a British Royal wedding cake.
Serving: This exceptional gin is an ideal “sipping gin” over ice, as a martini or gin mule. Or use a favorite tonic! We recommend a “test drive,” starting with a sip neat, and then adding your mixer to suit.
Story: Back in the day, the Brits gave sailors a gin ration. They found that below 114 proof, the powder wouldn’t burn if the gin spilled! That meant in order to burn the power to fire the cannons (to sink the French fleet!), the gin had to be 114 proof! We used mermaids on the label instead of battleships and sailors as a nod to Homer & The Odyssey, and to reflect on who rules the waves! Go Navy!
