Darnley’s Spiced Gin: Navy Strength Edition

Our Navy Strength edition of our award-winning Spiced Gin was inspired by the Royal Navy career of our ancestor Sir Rosslyn Wemyss. During his time at sea, ships’ officers still enjoyed a daily ration of gin which had to pass a gunpowder test to prove it was over 57% alcohol and therefore Navy Strength. Using the same botanicals as Darnley’s Spiced Gin, we have added more juniper to our recipe and increased the proof to bring you a bold Navy Strength gin.
