The Recipe For This 100% Proof, Navy Strength Gin Has Been Inspired By Edinburgh’s Rich Maritime And Naval Heritage And The Famous One O’clock Gun.
With Double The Juniper Content Of Our Classic Gin, This Is A Striking Spirit, Characterised By Bold Juniper And Warming Oriental Spice From Szechuan Peppercorns. Lemon Zest And Orange Balance The Spicy Notes For A Zesty Finish.
Great In A Variety Of Drinks, From G&Ts With Extra Verve To Intense, Punchy Martinis And Negronis. Lemon Peel Is The Perfect Garnish To Complement The Gin’s Citrus Profile.
Hand-Crafted & Small-Batch Gin. Orange And Lime Peels Arrive First On The Nose, But Are Quickly Backed Up By Refreshing, Vegetal Herbs. A Crackle Of Peppery Juniper Lasts Throughout.
When They Say Hand-Crafted & Small-Batch, This Is The Entire Truth. The Small-Batch Distilled Spirit Is Bottled By Hand, With Each Bottle Being Individually Numbered And Signed By The Master Distiller.
Avva – Means A Respected Grand-Mother, A Respected Mother, Any Old Or Respectable Woman In The Indian Language Of Dravidian. In Hebrew It Means To Overturn Or Ruin Which Links The Reputation That Gin Had As ‘Mother’s Ruin’ From The Hogarth Era.

Finish – Drying juniper and leafy herbs. A pinch of peppery rye lingers.

Clean, Green Elderflower Leaps Forward, Supported By A Delightfully Sweet And Juicy Orange. Juniper Is Present Throughout, But Never In A Dominating Capacity, Rather It Supports The Entire Flavour Journey, Leaving The Mouth Oscillating Wildly Between Pine And Citrus Long After The Sip Is Supped.
