Layered with lavender, juniper and honeysuckle on the nose, Gustaf shows a trace of citrus akin to yuzu or lime. Spicy and expansive on the palate, it finishes with notes of white pepper and licorice, a zesty, lingering expression of earth and sea. At 114 proof, navy strength gin occupies a storied place in the annals of British Naval history. The daily ration of gin or rum was only allowed on board if the proof was high enough to ensure that if the liquor drenched the gunpowder at sea it would still ignite.
