Tiny Bear The Sailor:
Have you ever wondered what Navy strength actually means? And what’s it got to do with Gin?
Sit down and pour yourself a glass my friend and wonder no longer.
We enter the Royal British Navy, an organisation that liked their gin very boozy indeed. They found that if you mix a ‘Navy’ strength gin, around 57-58% with gunpowder [as you do when you’re stuck on a boat for months on end with very little entertainment] – it still ignites if it has enough alcohol in it. “Proof” it’s good, really.
Bit of food for thought while you enjoy this slow sipper.
