Bathtub Gin - Navy-Strength

Bathtub Gin Navy-Strength Bottling Note

This is the Navy-Strength edition of the famous Bathtub Gin. As well as boasting a higher ABV than the original Bathtub Gin, this edition also has a bigger botanical punch thanks to the 'bashing up' (technical term) of the botanicals to release more flavour.

The story goes that the term Navy-Strength was the result of the British Navy demanding gin to be bottled at 57% abv so that if it was accidentally splashed on gunpowder, the powder would still ignite. It was more likely that it was a weight-saving measure but that's not as fun now is it?

As well as being named Best Compound Gin three years in a row at the World Gin Awards, Bathtub Gin - Navy-Strength was awarded the IWSC Trophy for Contemporary Gin in 2017!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The additional abv is immediately apparent, but well-tempered by a huge whack of citrus. After the initial hit of juniper and citrus, the spices are easily accessible – far more so than in the standard Bathtub. Top-notes of cinnamon and cardamom are supported by the earthier coriander and clove. Overall, this has one of the best noses I've ever experienced on a gin.

Palate: Huge, mouth-filling, oily and complex. The initial burst of flavour comes courtesy of the spices – cardamom, cinnamon, then follows the citrus and juniper backbone, before settling into a wonderful melange of that coriander and clove combination. Absolutely fantastic.

Finish: Incredibly long and lingering, with the cinnamon and clove jostling for position for literally minutes after the initial sip.

Overall: We talk about ‘sipping gins’ all the time, but I’m not convinced anyone is actually buying it. This, my friends, is the exception. An absolutely ridiculously flavour-packed spirit, far beyond the reaches of what would be possible using distillation alone as a method of manufacture. Just remarkable…

Bathtub Gin - Navy-Strength Reviews


As good as the standard bathtub gin, great flavours but an extra kick, especially in the warming aftertaste.

Fantastic Gin. Beautiful flavours. Can enjoy it neat. On the rocks. Or with tonic. Simply super.

This is one gin. Probably the only gin. That you can drink neat. Simply stunning.

Looking forward to this.

Great reviews, utterly dreadful label. Am certainly trying this and looking forward to it. A shame they have such a horrible Art Nouveau-styled label...a label should talk to its' product's name. There is nothing either Bathtub (read: Prohibition) or Navy about that label, though I won't let that put me off.

Super-sweet, juicy goodness

This is absolutely insanely delicious - really 'bright' tasting, and massively complex. Compounding is obviously the way of the future. Well done Professor!

Very nice. Makes a lovely G&T on a hot summers day.

A taste of Raffles Hotel Singapore.

Had to hide this from the "rellies" over Christmas (didn't want to spoil them to much) I am now on my second sampling this pm. A large Copita glass full of ice, Fentimans Tonic, a peeling of lemon and a decent measure of this delectable gin makes an old man happy. Just need a Memsahib to share one with! Bliss. 10 out of 10!
