Located in Wales, this award winning distillery focuses on creating world-class gins and are already known for their ‘precision-distilling’. They have developed and adapted techniques which allowed for maximum control over maceration temperatures, variable copper contact for distillation and much more besides.
Navy Strength Welsh Gin is an alliance between seafaring tradition and maritime botany, brought together through the medium of umami.
Combining hand-foraged coastal botanicals with exotic overseas spices, before distilling with a mix of vapour infusion and pot immersion.
The distillate of umami-rich flavours and bracing freshness is then rested in an ancient canteiro Madeira barrel prior to release. Older Madeira barrels develop a lactone called sotolon which contributes an umami character to some of the most venerable Madeira wines. In this case, it binds together key botanical notes with the ageing vessel to create a completely unique gin.
