1881 Honours Gin 70cl
Peebles Hydro once served as a Military hospital during WWII. Their award-winning Navy Strength Gin is named Honour of those injured, their heritage of hospitality preserved in waves of citrus and cardamom.
Honours Gin won two awards within its first year of release. The Cardamom and dry citrus notes are all highlighted by the heightened alcohol content, this is unimaginably smooth.
Nose: Juniper and grapefruit in abundance with a peppery, woody backing supplied by birch bark and angelica root.
Palate: Robust pine flavours with pronounced spice, ginger and grapefruit character held at the fore by the heightened alcohol content.
Finish: Despite its 57%ABV strength, this is an extremely smooth gin, with a rounded and creamy finish that stretches into the distance of the Peeblesshire hills.
Serve: a dash of angostura bitters and tonic water let this navy strength gin’s character shine – garnish with orange peel.
