Plymouth Original Strength is a unique, protected style of gin originating from the city of Plymouth, South West England. Since 1793 it has been distilled from a unique blend of 7 botanicals, soft Dartmoor water and pure grain alcohol at the historic Black Friars Distillery – the oldest working distillery in England. Plymouth Original Strength is 41.2% alcohol volume. It has a distinctively different, slightly less dry flavour than the much more commonly available London Dry Gin, as it contains a higher than usual proportion of root ingredients, which bring a more ‘earthy’ feel to the gin, as well as a smoother juniper hit, no single botanical dominates the overall flavour. The finish is long and dry.
