TINY BEAR The Sailor 58% 700ml
Have you ever wondered what Navy strength actually means? And what's it got to do with Gin? Sit down and pour yourself a glass my friend and wonder no longer. We enter the Royal British Navy, an organisation that liked their gin very boozy indeed. They found that if you mix a 'Navy' strength gin, around 57-58% with gunpowder [as you do when you're stuck on a boat for months on end with very little entertainment] - it still ignites if it has enough alcohol in it. "Proof" it's good, really. Bit of food for thought while you enjoy this slow sipper.
A bold driven Navy, with a powerful punch of Juniper, tart notes from full fresh oranges and spice from cardamom and clove. Best served as a slow sipper with a slice of orange and a clove. Is great in cocktails due to it powerful flavor profile. Recommendations: be brave = neat / on rocks Add tonic with Orange & clove = extra warmth Slice of ginger = extra kick
