Description

What is Navy Strength?

In the 18 century the Royal Navy legislated that all naval ships were to carry a quantity of gin on board and that it must be 1 00° proof (the English standard of the day) which equates to 57% ABV. It was discovered that gunpowder soaked in alcohol with a strength of more than 57% could still be ignited and this became the standard test for Navy Strength or ‘gunpowder proof’ gin.
