The Admiral, Navy Strength Gin 57%, Papillon Gin Distillery
Distilled with 18 botanicals including Dartmoor flavours of fresh gorse flowers picked on the moor, rowan and hawthorn berries, nettles and navelwort.
Named for the Red Admiral butterfly, a regular garden visitor on Dartmoor that feeds on nettles.
Taste: Smooth, sophisticated flavour. Fresh lemon and lime peel and flesh give it a citrus start, nutmeg and cardamom give subtle spice notes, gorse and chamomile add a floral touch, and the nettles and navelwort provide a clean finish.
Serve: We would recommend a single measure, over ice, with a premium tonic water and a small slice of lemon or lime peel.
Salute the Admiral
