Lytham Gin ‘The Navigator’s’ Navy Strength Gin
Winner of The Gin Guide 2022 Navy Strength category. This is a traditional gin with plenty of oomph!
A really enticing, complex, exciting aroma, a medley of juniper, herbs and spices. Powerful on the palate, but with a glorious meld of almost sweet fruitiness, indefinable but appealing herbs and a touch of spice – and yes, remarkably, a creamy finish. Ridiculously smooth for its abv. Decided notes of apple on the finish, which – creaminess aside – is clean, but with an imposing presence. A shame to mix with tonic, though the abv suggests it – perhaps a more neutral spirit, or a floral Vermouth would work better. One to sip on an abundance of rocks, rather slowly and contemplatively. Really innovative, a standout gin.
