CORNISH SCURVY GIN BY WRECKING COAST DISTILLERY
This fantastic Scurvy Gin marries 9 botanicals including fresh lemon and lime peel and locally foraged fresh scurvy grass to create a robust, juniper led gin with bold citrus notes, hints of liquorice and peppery heat from the scurvy grass. Great in a G&T with a good tonic, Fever-Tree Mediteranenan , but knock-out in a Negroni with a bar-spoon of olive brine. Why not fix yourself that noblest of cocktails, the Gimlet and enjoy a piece of naval history.
Navy Strength refers to gin at 57% abv and traces its roots to either the “proof” of strength to avoid being swindled with watered down gin (gunpowder, sparked into gin at this strength would stay lit), or perhaps from the fact that, if spilled on gunpowder, the cannons would still fire. Either way, scurvy grass, gin and the Royal Navy are inseparable in history.
