About Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Navy Strength
Their Bathtub Gin is the showrunner, and rightly so. Copper-pot distilled with juniper, coriander, and other botanicals, a portion of this gin is then cold-compound infused with another 6 botanicals (including dried orange peel, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, cassia bark), which takes an entire week. The Navy Strength version comes at a higher 114 proof and bolder, more intense botanical flavor that is achieved by cracking the botanicals open before the infusion.

Ableforth's was founded in 2011 by a group of 3 friends who share a love for spirits ranging from gin to rum and everything in between. The brand started with extremely small batches of 30 to 60 bottles at a time but has since grown considerably, expanding its production as well as the team. Taking inspiration from the past and combining it with a modern production process and approach, they craft innovative spirits, always putting the taste first and never compromising.
This has led them to adopt a slow infusion process as well as incorporate various super-premium ingredients in their creations, such as XO cognac. They have several gins, rums, and brandies in their lineup ranging from Cask-Aged, Old Tom, and Sloe Gin to Rumbullion! XO and Chilli & Chocolate spiced rum, Cherry and Dark Chocolate VSOP brandy as well as Summer Fruit Cup and Winter Mulled Cup.
According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
