Plymouth Navy Strength | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 57º
Type Plymouth Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica, Cardamom, Coriander seed, Orange, Lemon, Lily root and Juniper.

Brief Description
“For about 200 years, the British Navy and Plymouth Navy Strength were inseparable. No ship left port without a bottle aboard.”
In fact, the Gin was transported in barrels in the hold, alongside the gunpowder. The strength of Plymouth Navy Strength was “thought” that even if the gin came into contact with the gunpowder, the latter wouldn’t lose its ability to explode, something that had happened in the Original version with 41.2º alcohol.
Plymouth Gin was born in 1793 in the city which gave it its name and ever since then, produced ever since in the Plymouth Gin Distillery, what was the Black Friars Distillery, situated next to the port, making it the oldest distillery in England still in production.
The distillery took the place of a monastery, which is why on every bottle there is always a monk engraved on the glass, and on the label the Mayflower.
On the nose and on the palate, Plymouth Navy Strength is everything a Gin should be. On the nose, it is pungent with Juniper to the fore, supported by the citrus note of the coriander seeds and the perfume of cardamom. In the mouth it is rich and omnipresent. It is surprisingly smooth, considering its alcohol grade.

Plymouth Sloe | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 26º
Type Sloe Gin
Known Botanicals Angelica, Cardamom, Coriander seed, Orange, Lemon, Lily root and Juniper.

Brief Description
The tradition of making Sloe Gin is centuries old in England. Thus, the centuries old, traditional Plymouth based company -  it must never be forgotten that Plymouth Gin Distillery is the oldest distillery in England still in production in its original home – had to present its latest Gin based liqueur. Resorted to the recipe date back to 1883, Plymouth respects its ancestral methods of production of Sloe Gin, adding Sloe berries to its Gin and sugar to facilitate the extraction of flavour from the previously macerated fruit. Sloes belong to the plum family, described as similar to the damson but more bitter.
Sloe Gins are naturally smoother than Gin because of the fruit and, of course, the sugar. When we open a bottle of Plymouth Sloe we immediately notice the fruity touch of this Gin, with plum appearing first, closely followed by a touch of almond. Something we don’t notice is the alcohol, due to its lower alcohol grade of 26º, and due to the sugars extracted from the fruit. In the mouth, Plymouth Sloe remains smooth and fruity even though it is well structured and has a drier taste than other Sloe Gins.
