10% Off - 50cl HMS Spirits Dreadnought Gin - £43.20 Delivered (2nd Class UK Postage)
Dreadnought Gin is the second in our fleet, a navy strength gin at 57.5%, so-called because a warship's gunpowder could still ignite, even if soaked in the spirit.
A well-balanced juniper led London Dry Gin, adding subtle notes of grapefruit to liven the front of the palate followed by a soft rosemary finish. It's carefully distilled in small batches using a copper pot still and retains a slightly higher essential oil content which gives it a richness and ensures its smoothness on the palate.
The Sip and Share price is calculated as follows: we take 10% off the RRP and then add postage on. This is because the distillers do not make any money, in fact they make a loss when it comes to postage.
Price includes 2nd Class UK delivery and will be fulfilled by the Distillery. For any issues with delivery or product please contact distillery - : HMS Spirits Company
About the Distiller
Like many people, Ben Maguire, founder of HMS Spirits, has always enjoyed a refreshing G&T. But he felt that there was a gap in the market and wanted to create something that combined traditional gin making values with a modern twist.
“There were loads of gins out there, but I wanted something that really appealed to people like me. Deep down I’m a bit of a stickler for tradition but as a young entrepreneur, I love trying out new things and seeing where that takes me,” Ben says.
So that’s what he did – he invested in a beautiful 35-litre copper still, during a completely non-related trip to Hungary, shipped it back and installed it in his garage. Over the next few years, he spent every spare moment testing different recipes, blends and botanicals in search of the perfect mix – a gin that respected the art of the London Dry, but also delivered a fresh, unexpected twist.
