Black Powder packs a punch. This gin is Singapore’s very first Double Gold Winner at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

A super smooth award-winning navy-strength gin that delivers a punchy 58% ABV, making it an ideal gin for your cocktails, but also great for sipping. Any navy strength gin has to be above 57% ABV, the strength at which gin drenched gunpowder still ignites when lit. Rest-assured this award-winner has no rough edges and is creamy smooth.

The Black Powder recipe departs from the Orchid Gin in two ways: half the juniper pods are bruised and whole fresh lemons are added into the botanical blend for a bright citrus note.

58% ABV | 700ml

Taste Profile:
Gentle citrus nose with a bold juniper pepper character, herbal mid-palate, slight pepper finish.

Fun Stuff

Centuries ago, an Alchemist from China was searching for the Elixir of Life. Ironically, he created gunpowder instead. When Europeans first heard about magical fireworks and exploding weapons, they voyaged and ventured to find it. Navy-strength gin arose from similar expeditions as vessels were required to have a certain amount of gin on board. In order to test gin quality, a mixture of gin and gun powder was used to check against unscrupulous employers. If it burned clear—this was a sign that it was 57% ABV and above.

Try it neat, hold it in the mouth and allow the taste buds to open, warming the liquid before swallowing.
