Bottled at 57.2% ABV, LBD Latitude Strength Gin is distilled with a variety of botanicals, including some locally foraged and grown such as wood sorrel, beech leaf, parsnip and birch sap. Thanks to the distillation process the gin manages to capture both bold and delicate flavours in the same sip, with a well balanced flavour profile that excites and entices. The ABV references the 57.2 latitude line that the distillery sits on.
Little Brown Dog Spirits was officially established in 2018 by vet and whisky connoisseur Andrew Smith and farmer Chris Reid in rural Aberdeenshire. Little Brown Dog Spirits is a creative hub for distilling experimental, small batch distillations along with a larger still for bigger spirit runs. The Little Brown Dog Spirits team is focused on creating spirits with true provenance through the use of locally foraged botanicals. Enjoying the independence of creating unique and experimental spirits, including gin, the team plan on releasing a number of one-off limited edition spirits.
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.
Little Brown Dog Spirits Distillery, a micro-distillery in rural Aberdeenshire, is a stone’s throw from the local landmark of Bennachie. The distillery focuses on flavour and producing innovative spirits, including gin, that combine provenance and break down some of the traditions associated with the world of spirits. The distillery is home to a 100 litre traditional Alembic copper pot still named ‘Big Dug’ along with a smaller 10 litre development still fittingly named ‘Wee Dug’.
