Jos. Magnus Vigilant Navy Strength Gin 114 proof

Jos. Magnus Vigilant Navy Strength Gin...$36.99
114 proof
Packs a punch at 114 proof and bestows a backbone to classic gin cocktails. Crafted from 100 percent corn distillate, steeped and distilled with smoky harissa, its dry-medium body features 4-year-old Italian juniper, figs, fresh mint, lemon, hops, and hibiscus for a crisp and sophisticated finish.

What is Navy Strength?
When 18th century legislation was passed in Britain mandating every vessel of the Royal Navy have a certain quantity of gin on board as a panacea for scurvy and malaria, savvy officers who suspected their gin was being diluted discovered that only gin which was at least 57% ABV would still ignite the gun powder. With a bang, Navy Strength was born!
