Plymouth Gin

Plymouth Gin
Plymouth Gin is one of the only gins in the world to be distinguished as its own style. Technically, any gin made in Plymouth, England is a "Plymouth gin," but they happen to be the only one left! It's not as insanely juniper-forward as some of its cousins, and we love it in Negronis for exactly that reason. But it's also great in a classic Gin and Tonic, and, hell, even on the rocks.

More about Plymouth Gin

A geographically protected gin, Plymouth Gin can only be produced in Plymouth, Devon. These days, there's also just the one producer responsible for making it: Plymouth Gin (go figure). Flavour-wise, it's similar to a London Gin, though slightly sweeter and containing a different blend of botanicals with more emphasis on earthy roots and fruit-forward flavours. Plymouth Gin originated at a time when several major British cities each had their own respective gin styles. It first gained favour with the British Navy in the late 18th century. The distiller's "Navy Strength" spirit, bottled at 57% ABV, only became more popular during the Victorian era, and was used in the first recorded recipe for a Dry Martini. Today, Plymouth Gin sells both an Original Strength Distillation at 41.2% ABV and the headier Navy Strength. -
