Introducing our HMS Victory Navy Strength Gin
We are thrilled to announce a Partnership with the Isle of Wight Distillery and The National Museum of the Royal Navy to produce, under license, a unique Navy Strength Gin.
The Island-based distillery, that currently produces handcrafted Wight Mermaids Gin, has partnered with the museum to launch a new Navy Strength Gin named after HMS Victory, the Navy’s most illustrious warship. There will also be a special limited edition gin that is both Navy Strength and aged in oak barrels to recreate the taste and style of gin drunk at sea by Naval officers who served at the Battle of Trafalgar.
The Isle of Wight Distillery has commissioned four bespoke barrels that will incorporate pieces of oak from HMS Victory itself. They will be created by England’s only Master Cooper, Alastair Simms who will be working closely with the National Museum of the Royal Navy conservation team in Portsmouth. A percentage of the sales will go to support the ongoing restoration of the Victory.
The Navy Strength Gin has a higher concentration of botanicals resulting in a more intense flavour.
