The Banchory distiller launched the Naked Uncut gin at Gin: North East festival this weekend. At 77% ABV, it is officially the world’s strongest gin. The limited batch of 101 bottles is expected to sell out quickly
“When our head distiller, Liam Pennycook tasted the uncut spirit straight from the still, he decided it was too good not to share,” said Ryan Rhodes, brand ambassador for Twin River.
“By developing Uncut, we really wanted to push the boundaries – but obviously ask people to enjoy it sensibly.
“You have to appreciate that most gins are 40 or 50%abv so care must be taken when drinking this spirit and a small amount definitely goes a long way.”
The gin is not just strong, but has a heavy juniper flavour with sweet spiciness, and can be enjoyed (in small doses) with tonic.
