Distillery strength for core brands
Strathearn, the strongest gin range in the UK
The strongest gin range in the UK has just been launched by Perth-based artisan spirits producer, Strathearn Distillery. At 60.5% ABV, the distillery strength versions of their four core gins will pack a punch.
Strathearn is the first traditional single cask distillery to begin production in more than 100 years, implementing traditional methods to create individual batches of spirit.
Tony Reeman-Clark, founder, said: “We toyed with what we would call the range. Scotland doesn’t have a Navy so we didn’t want to name it Navy Strength so Distillery Strength seems most appropriate.
“We tweaked and developed the recipe so that they held true to their lower- strength versions but at the same time had their own character.
“Finally there was only one question, how strong? One of the team turned to me and asked how old I was and suggested the gin should be as strong as my age… so the gin become 60.5% ABV. The strongest gin in the UK.”
The balance in the distillery strength gin is achieved by using two distillations instead of the normal one to create the powerful spirit.
