Plymouth Gin deserves its status as the world's finest light spirit; an honor awarded by judges at the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco. The marvelous spirit is fundamentally different from other super-premium gins. Distilled near the naval base at Plymouth, England, the brand has a storied history with the British Royal Navy. Indeed, it could well be called the gin that launched a thousand ships. Distinguished Plymouth Gin continues to be made where it originated over 200 years ago, at England's oldest continuously operating distillery—the Black Friars Distillery. The venerable brand is distilled in a large copper alembic still using pure grain spirits, soft Dartmoor water and an infusion of seven hand-selected botanicals. A quick sniff is all that's necessary to explain Plymouth Gin's enduring popularity. It has an expansive, citrus and juniper bouquet and a seamlessly smooth body. The Gin immediately fills the mouth with the exuberant flavors of juniper, coriander, orange and lemon. The Gin finishes long and is brimming with flavor.
