When it comes to a Navy Strength Gin, 'The Man O' War' Gin from Hold Fast Distillery, blows the others out of the water. Despite a high ABV of 58.0%, this is flavoursome and easy to drink. It starts with an expressive Juniper and Yuzu nose, which transitions into delicious flavours of Jam and Spice.
It is distilled with Juniper, Coriander, Cardamon, Grains of Paradise, Cubeb Berries Orris Root and Yuzu Peel.
This Gin is perfect to drink neat, have with soda and tonic water. The deeper Juniper flavour makes sure you can keep the gin flavoursome whether you garnish with cucumber, lime or lemon.
Nose: Warm aromas of Juniper and Yuzu.
Palate: Jam and spicy flavours drive the taste. Undertone of Juniper and citrus hold underneath the flavour.
Finish: Warm long finish of spice, sweetness and juniper.
