The latest release from the Wrecking Coast Distillery, makers of the Cornish Clotted Cream Gin.
This is their Navy Strength Gin, made with Scurvy Grass or Cochlearia Officinalis to give it is proper name. Scurvy grass was regularly taken on board ships in dried bundles or in distilled extracts to give much needed Vitamin C. Scurvy grass drinks were popular up until the mid 19th century when the availability of lemons replaced them as a source of Vitamin C.
In addition to the locally foraged Scurvy Grass, Wrecking Coast has added 8 other botaniclas including fresh lemon and lime peel to create a robust and juniper led gin. There are bold citrus notes, hints of liquorice and peppery heat from the scurvy grass.
Like any good Navy Strength gin the flavours are big and bold to not been over powered by the higher proof. Great in a G&T with lemon and lime garnish and really comes into its own in a Martini.
