HMS Spirits started in 2016 with our flagship spirit Mary Rose Gin. We use 100% organic British wheat grain spirit as the base for this well- balanced juniper led London Dry, adding pink grapefruit peel to liven the front of the palate and rosemary for a soft subtle finish. The Mary Rose has sailed its way to success winning awards locally and abroad, including LSC Silver 2018, IWSC Outstanding Silver, Outstanding Gin and Tonic Silver 2018 and Double Gold at the China Wine & Spirits Awards 2019 and IWSC Outstanding Silver 2020.
Dreadnought Gin is the second in our fleet, a navy strength gin at 57.5%, so-called because a warship’s gunpowder could still ignite, even if soaked in the spirit. A well-balanced juniper led London Dry Gin, adding subtle notes of grapefruit to liven the front of the palate followed by a soft rosemary finish. It’s carefully distilled in small batches using a copper pot still and retains a slightly higher essential oil content which gives it a richness and ensures its smoothness on the palate.
Elizabeth Gin was last to join the fleet, a delicate balance of botanicals, a classic London Dry Gin and a natural elderflower distillate, producing a juniper led gin on the nose followed by light flowery and honey like tones, ensuring a crisp, palate-cleansing finish.
