The proof is in the proof.
The second offering in our gin lineup and we intentionally wanted to craft something very different than Volstead's Folly, but that was unique, bold, and delicious in its own right. We created a gin that showcases some of our favorite botanical flavors: lemon-pepper citrus with a beautiful floral note.
Fred Minnick's 2022 Ascot Awards awarded it a PLATINUM Medal, describing it:
“Gorgeous bright nose, hint of sunny citrus peel with a soft sweetness reminiscent of summertime fields. Grassy citrus notes on the palate, zesty without too much heat for a high proof gin.”
Navy Strength gins are typically 110-114 proof, but we set out to put the AMERICAN in American Navy Strength so we knew we had to make it stronger and better than the rest, which is partly why we settled on 120 proof. We are proud to say that although this gin's flavor and proof dominate the world's ocean of gin, it drinks much easier than expected, making it sippable on its own while also being extremely versatile in cocktails
Tasting Notes: Lemon-pepper citrus with light floral nose. The palate showcases earthy tropical citrus with lighter chamomile notes. Surprisingly smooth finish with the high proof being countered by the warm black pepper.
