Slingsby Navy Strength Gin
William Slingsby discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water from Harrogate’s Tewit Well in 1571. His discovery brought visitors from all around to the wonderfully picturesque spa town. Slingsby epitomised the spirit of Harrogate and Slingsby are proud that their product bears his name.
The key ingredients in the Slingsby range are hand-grown local plants synonymous with the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate including primrose, sweet cicely, nettle, rhubarb, milk thistle, rosehip and Taylors of Harrogate green and jasmine tea. Slingsby master distiller, based at Langley Distillery, Birmingham, has 35 years experience producing outstanding quality gins. Slingsby expertly combines Harrogate aquifer water, pure single grain spirit and their carefully selected botanicals which is masterfully finished in North Yorkshire.
One glimpse of the sleek, black bottle indicates that this is something very special. Bottled at 57% ABV, Slingsby Navy Strength Gin continues the tradition of the Royal Navy’s ‘proof test’ whereby gunpowder can still ignite if gin is accidentally spilled upon it. The Citrus from the grapefruit is more pronounced than the London Dry Gin and once the citrus has mellowed, it allows the softer and earthier botanicals to become more dominant.
On the nose, toasted coriander seed, black tea, spicy juniper and a balancing wave of waxy citrus peels. Mellow juniper with subtle vanilla on the palate. Subtle sweet finish with notes of liquorice.
Enjoy with a premium tonic water on ice with a wedge of pink grapefruit.
Slingsby Navy Strength Gin has received 29 awards from around the world including San Francisco, New York, London and China.
