Duck & Crutch - Kensington Overproof Dry Gin
A punchy rendition of our Kensington Dry Gin, with a less subtle complexity and much bolder tasting notes. Citrus and spice are a welcome punch rather than the familiar tickle. Juniper still features heavily throughout with a toned down Darjeeling tea finish.
‘Over proof’ spirits were traditionally at a high enough ABV (later recognised as 57%), that if spilt on gunpowder at sea, the gunpowder would still burn. The Navy would conduct VERY scientific 'tests' (blowing up things and drinking it) before setting sail with it on board.
