Slingsby Navy Strength Gin
70cl Abv 57% 40 Units

One glimpse of the sleek, black bottle indicates that this is something very special. Our Navy Strength Gin uses the same botanical mix as our classic London Dry Gin including Primrose, sweet cicely, nettle, rhubarb, milk thistle, rosehip and Taylors of Harrogate green and jasmine tea, however is stronger and richer with an ABV of 57%. This creates a great body and intensity whilst still retaining our 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.

William Slingsby discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water from  Harrogate’s Tewit Well in 1571. His discovery brought visitors from all around to the wonderfully picturesque spa town. Slingsby epitomised the spirit of Harrogate and we are proud our product bears his name. Today, visitors still flock to Harrogate to relax, shop and socialise whilst taking in the restorative nature of our town.

Tasting notes

Once the citrus has mellowed, the softer and more earthier botanicals become a lot more dominant, adding a savoury note which balances out the palate. A reduction in Harrogate Spring water allows some of the less featured botanicals, Jasmine and Green Tea to take on a more dominant presence. The mellowed Juniper and subtle vanilla profile, paired with liquorish root allows for a subtle and sweet finish.
