Scurvy Gin Navy Strength

Not just a punchier version of our other gins, The Wrecking Coast’s Scurvy Cornish Navy Strength gin is designed from the ground up to be a big spirit. Its nine-botanical recipe includes locally foraged Scurvy grass, a vitamin-C-packed herb that got its name thanks to its use on ships (and on land) to fight scurvy. Fortunately, it’s not only good against scurvy, but also has a great citrusy, peppery taste, that adds a unique bite to this flavoursome gin.

Tasting Notes

Packed with flavour and easily a match with the most heavily flavoured of tonics – we’d recommend something traditional to pair with the citrus and spice. It also makes a great negroni, cutting through Campari’s sticky bittersweetness with no trouble.

Nose

Sweet citrus up front – candied lemon and spicy juniper – with crushed leaves and cut grass to follow. Lemon boiled sweets develop along with peppery spice and citrus peel: tangerine and lime. It’s all backed up by a gentle candy-floss sweetness.

Palate

Thick, rich and oily, with stewed lemons and peppery grass clippings to start. Sour citrus notes build, balanced by sweet spice and green leaves. Bitter leafy notes are likewise balanced by candied citrus and more sweet spice.

Finish

Lingering citrus peel and black pepper fade to citrus-forward, freshly cracked black pepper and lemon zest.

The Story

A brief introduction to The Wrecking Coast Distillery

Inside the shed

Avian Sandercock

Minder of the stills, conductor of experiments, flavour obsessive and chief geek. If you have drunk anything made by Wrecking Coast, you have Avian to thank for pressing the buttons, pulling the levers, shovelling ingredients, and probably for putting it in the bottle.

Outside the shed

Craig Penn

Head salesman, arbiter of design, one-man online team and chief taste-tester. If you have held a bottle from Wrecking Coast in your hands, then you have Craig to thank for both how it looks and for extracting it from the Cornish countryside and getting it to you.

In the beginning...

Buddies Avian and Craig have dabbled in drinks for years, although from the drinking side of the bar. Having lost his taste for beer, Craig turned to spirits.
