Like Campfire Gin, this navy strength version is made with 10 botanicals: juniper, orris, coriander, angelica, rooibos, roasted hazelnut, golden berry, fresh orange peel, fresh grapefruit peel and lavender, although the distillers say “we’ve upped the quantities, and smashed them around a bit,
Looking to eek out every ounce of flavour and aroma to balance the heady 57% ABV.”

The botanicals are macerated for 24 hours in UK produced neutral wheat spirit and then removed from the still (a 50 litre still called Isabella) prior to distillation.

Campfire Navy Strength Gin was launched April 2017.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 21/02/2018

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Peppery spirituous aromas slightly mast the scent of underlying piney juniper, fruit rooibos, nutty angelica and zesty citrus.

Taste:

There is an attractive sweetness before this gin’s punch kicks in, but robust sweet citrus notes are present throughout.

Aftertaste:

Obvious and expected long lingering spirituous peppery spice is accompanied with dry piney juniper, a delicate rooty bitterness and more sweet citrus.

Overall:

This is a huge but balanced Navy Gin with both an alcoholic strength and robustness befitting the term.
