The Plymouth Original Strength brand of gin is 41.2% ABV. It is different and slightly less dry than the much more common London style of gin, purportedly due to a higher than usual proportion of root ingredients, which bring a more ‘earthy’ feel to the gin as well as a softened juniper flavour. There is also a ‘navy strength’ variety which is 57% ABV (100° English proof), being the traditional strength demanded by the British Royal Navy. [4] A 47% ABV (94 U.S. proof) version is distributed worldwide.
