What was once a 15th-century monastic building is now home to the Black Friars Distillery, the only remaining distillery in Plymouth, England. The Port of Plymouth was once a “beacon for explorers,” an important hub of commerce for maritime traders. Although “Plymouth Gin” is a distinction reserved only for gins that are distilled in Plymouth England, the Plymouth brand is the only brand produced in the area.

The Plymouth distillery (also known as the Black Friars Distillery) was once a Dominican Order (also known as the Black Friars) monastery built in 1431. Founded by a man named Mr. Coates as a distilling business in 1793, the distillery itself has been producing the Plymouth brand ever since, under Fox & Williamson (which switched names thereafter to Coates & Co). After changing hands several times, England’s oldest working distillery, and its brand are now produced under the colossal Pernod Ricard, as of 2008.

The distillery’s buildings served many purposes throughout the 15th and 16th centuries. Formerly a Black Friars monastery, in 1536 became the town’s “Marshalsea” (debtor’s prison). It is believed that this location was where the first Non-Conformist meeting took place, also serving as a billet for Huguenot refugees. Later on, it was said to have housed the Pilgrim Fathers during their last night in England in 1620, before they boarded the Mayflower.

“It was from the distillery they made the short walk down to the harbor to set sail on the Mayflower on their epic voyage to start a new life in America, where they founded a new Plymouth” (Plymouth Gin). Plymouth Gin Navy strength is a bolder more concentrated version of the original Plymouth Gin. Bottled at a higher proof: 57% ABV. The juniper notes are more prominent, notes of spice and lemon also brighter and bolder. This Navy Strength expression earned Double Gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and Gold at the 2015 International Spirits Challenge.
