Slingsby Navy Strength Gin
Slingsby Navy Strength Gin uses the same botanical mix as Spirit of Harrogate’s classic London Dry Gin including Primrose, sweet cicely, nettle, rhubarb, milk thistle, rosehip and Taylors of Harrogate green and jasmine tea, however, it is stronger and richer with an ABV of 57%.
This creates a great body and intensity whilst still retaining their classically smooth finish. This gin continues the tradition of the Royal Navy’s ‘proof test’, whereby gunpowder can still ignite if gin is accidentally spilled upon it.
