Gin * 50cl * 57% ABV * UK
This (from the makers of your favourite Silent Pool, no less) is a juniper-driven navy strength gin with notes of chamomile and lavender. Such gins originate from the days when sailors in the British Navy were paid in part with booze. The story goes that one of the ways to check that nobody had diluted their gin was to pour a little on the gunpowder and see if it would light - 57% is the lowest ABV at which the sailor's musket would still fire! A double shot of this gin might blow your head off... so best stick to the single measures.
