Proof66 Notes

Hayman's Royal Dock Navy Strength gin was released in 2012, based upon their recreation of the gin provided to the British Navy in the town of Deptford as far back as 1863. Navy strength rums are famous for their high proofs and this gin is no exception: at 114 proof is much higher than the typical high 80's and low 90's of most bottlings. The marketing brief suggests that the higher proof allowed the ship's gunpowder to still fire if gin were spilled upon the fuse (no mention of the marksmanship).

Hayman Distillers is an English gin company tracing its production as far back as the early 1800s founded by James Burrough (credited with the creation of Beefeater Gin). The family retained a portion of their business when Beefeater was sold in 1987 to maintain premium gin production continuously throughout its 3-generation stewardship.
