Aroma: Wonderfully bright juniper, coriander and citrus.

Conclusions: Warming and perfectly balanced with soft underlying spice.
Editor Choice: First supplied to the English Admiralty in 1863, we still make our Navy Strength Royal Dock Gin in London to this day. The style is bright and bracing but not at all overpowering with a brilliant balance of juniper, coriander and citrus and a softly nuanced mouthfeel.
Bottled at a traditional Navy Strength of 57% ABV, this hearty style of gin is suited perfectly to mixing a classic Pink Gin. Also wonderful in a traditional True English Gimlet, originally mixed by combining the sailors’ daily tot of gin with the lime ration provided to fight off scurvy.
The bright flavours of citrus, juniper and coriander in Hayman’s Royal Dock make it the perfect match for spicy Indian food, as the robust flavours in the gin stand up to the traditional Indian spices.
Enjoy a refreshing take on traditional Victorian Navy Strength Pink Gin.
