NB Distillery

North Berwick, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

In 2011, armed with a pressure cooker and some old central heating pipes, Vivienne and Steven Muir, husband and wife, cobbled together a makeshift gin still in their kitchen. With their trusty DIY still they were able to test hundreds of different recipes and various botanicals until they had a recipe they were happy with. From here they were granted a licence and the kitchen of their sea side home in North Berwick became an official ginnery.

They purchased a desktop lab still and began the process of distillation, refinement, distillation, refinement over thousands of hours until they had created their perfect gin. And finally, they commissioned the world’s oldest and most revered still-makers John Dore to make them a custom gin still, built to their exact specifications with no pressure cooker in sight.

NB Navy Strength Gin is a pure, clear, uncompromised grain sprit of 57% ABV. The result of the same exacting process that’s been perfected and bottled to create the original NB Gin. The traditional term ‘Navy Strength’ refers to the high ABV of the gin. It’s the proof at which gunpowder would still ignite, should gin be spilt on it, and was the established way British Navy officers would test the strength of their gin supplies, ensuring that they were not diluted by unscrupulous suppliers, or indeed by fellow sailors.
