Tasting notes










Made on the Derbyshire / Staffordshire borders and finely crafted by founder Neil Harrison, Nelson's Navy Strength gin uses the same botanicals as the original London Dry Nelson's gin but in increased amounts to get the balance right for a stronger alcohol gin to allow for a smooth, fresh and clean finish. For over 200 years, no Royal Navy ship left port without Navy Strength gin on board. It was a stronger percentage so that it would still set fire if it were spilt onto the gunpowder.

If it was a weaker strength, the gin would just soak the power making it useless and leaving the ship defenceless. This gin certainly passes the test at a higher ABV but still has the subtle notes of lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves from Thailand, vanilla from Madagascar, and cinnamon from Sri Lanka.

The people

Having worked as a chef for many years, Neil Harrison, founder of Nelson's gin had a vision and the palate to create a truly exception gin. He spent two years researching and trialling the best combinations of botanical ingredients, mixing up 7 different batches before mastering the final secret recipe in what is now called Nelson's Gin no. 7

The products

Nelson's gin have launched three gins: the no. 7 original Nelson's gin, a rhubarb and custard gin, and a Navy strength gin. For over 200 years, no ship of the Royal Navy left port without a load of Navy Strength gin (named so because it had to contain sufficient alcohol that if it were to be spilt onto gunpowder, it would still light). As such, Nelson's gin is named after England's greatest naval hero, Admiral Lord Nelson, as well as paying homage to the grandfather of its founder, Nelson Harrison.
