World Gin Day 2017 | Tarquin’s 'The Seadog' Navy Strength Gin from 31Dover

Gin lovers rejoice! It's World Gin Day today. In its ninth year, the day aims to celebrate all things Gin. Gin sales have been growing each year and the quintessentially British spirit has gained a lot of popularity worldwide. In UK there are a number of Gin manufacturers ranging from big brands to smaller artisan manufacturers.

Aside from the very popular Gin & Tonic, there are many other gin-based cocktails you can enjoy. Some of them are fancy while some though basic in terms of ingredients, still pack a punch.

31Dover.com stock a wide range of Gins - from popular English Gins like Bombay Sapphire, Sipsmith London, Plymouth Gin, Thomas Dakin and Tarquin's to American Gins like No. 209 and Brooklyn Gin. In celebration of World Gin Day, I have included a very simple cocktail recipe for gin-lovers featuring Tarquin's 'The Seadog' Gin.

Tarquin's 'The Seadog' Navy Strength Gin is Southwestern Distillery's excellent Tarquin's Gin, but bottled at 57%. The higher ABV is the strength at which gunpowder would still ignite if it was accidentally soaked in gin during battle and the strength historically drunk by the Royal Navy. Made using the same traditional distilling and hand-finish methods, the navy strength gin uses increased botanicals (fresh orange, lemon, grapefruit, coriander, cinnamon, violet, juniper, angelica, cardamom, liquorice and almond) to balance the alcohol strength and at the same time maintain the unique Tarquin’s Cornish Gin flavour.
