Having spent over a decade running an electrical engineering business that included a number of distilleries, father and son Jim and Lawrence Nicholson, were slowly introduced to gin. They agreed it would be a really unique offering, to be able to make your own gin online and have a bottle of your finished gin delivered to your door. Fast forward to October 2019, with a one-of-a-kind bespoke gin still in place, the distillery officially opened its doors offering a number of Scottish Gin expressions and a unique website that lets consumers design their own gin.
Navy Strength Gin
Navy Strength Gin, sometimes called gunpowder or overproof, has to be at least 57% ABV to be classed as a Navy Strength Gin in the UK. It earned the name ‘Navy Strength’ because sailors used to test the ABV of their rationed gin on the ship by mixing it with a small quantity of gunpowder and if the mixture ignited they would know the gin was suitable and had not been watered down. The higher ABV can often amplify the flavours and aromas.
The Inspirited Distillery is located in the small market town of Strathaven in South Lanarkshire. Operating from their commercial unit in the town, the distillery is fitted with a one-of-a-kind still that was designed by founder Lawrence and the team at Allied Beverage Tanks in Chicago, USA. The still allows the distillery to produce single bottles of gin thanks to its unique configuration. The result being that multiple gins can be produced during one distillation process, which lends itself perfectly to their ‘design you own gin online’ service. The distillery can then prepare the recipe, distil the gin, bottle and dispatch to the creator.
