Nelson was partial to a drop of the hard stuff. And after a busy day harrying the French, his favourite tipple was gin - but only of the finest quality. Which is why, when the Isle of Wight Distillery produced a truly outstanding gin, they called it after the Admiral’s flagship. Of course with a name like HMS Victory, the spirit’s maritime credentials had to be impeccable. That’s why it’s distilled to 57%abv, which would have been the strength demanded by the Navy in Nelson’s time. And to ensure that the barrels loaded aboard contained gin that hadn’t been watered down, a few drops were splashed onto gunpowder. If the powder could still be ignited, the gin was ‘Navy Strength’ and suitable for serving in the wardroom. Dry, slightly peppery, with a high concentration of botanical oils, intense flavour and aroma, HMS Victory is a gin to savour when the sun’s over the yardarm. Perfect with tonic, ice and a slice, or tinged with Angostura bitters for a classic pink gin. Raise your glasses to the spirit of Nelson! 70cl.
