Wight HMS Victory Navy Strength Gin Miniature - 5cl
The Isle of Wight Distillery is proud to work in partnership with The National Museum of the Royal Navy to produce under license, a unique Navy Strength Gin.
Back in the 18th century the Royal Navy legislated that all naval ships were to carry on board a quantity gin and that it must be 100¬∞ proof , which equates to 57% ABV.
It was discovered that even gunpowder that had been soaked in alcohol with a strength of more than 57% ABV could still be ignited and this there became the standard test for Navy Strength or ‚Äògunpowder proof‚Äô gin.
