Made by Dunnet Bay Distillers all the way up in North Scotland, this wonderfully floral gin gets its name from the Rhodiola Rosea, or rock rose, which the Vikings used to harvest because it was thought to give them the extra strength to continue on their long arduous journeys. Other locally foraged botanicals in the gin include rowan berries, sea buckthorn, and verbena. This Navy Strength gin uses the same botanicals as the original, but the resulting flavour is different as the berries come through a lot more on the palate. The earthier notes of angelica and orris come through at the end. We would recommend East Imperial Grapefruit Tonic, garnished with Orange for a great G&T.
