Spirit of Hven Navy Strength Gin
Spirit of Hven Organic Navy Strength Gin is a unique distillate made from grain to bottle on the island of Hven in the strait of Öresund. This wonderful type of gin carries hundreds of years of history.
Reshaped and further evolved to comply with new and safe distillation technique to adapt to modern drinking culture and refined taste and scent buds. Historically British commercial and naval fleets during the 18th century, tradition stated that officers drank gin and the lower ranking crew drank rum.
With Spirit of Hven Organic Navy Strength Gin they have recreated the original, historical character in a completely new and unique way. Their grain base spirit is mashed in from a recipe with Wheat, Barley and Rye, fermented to 9.8vol% over 68H, and then distilled to 96 vol% in specially designed copper columns.
