Fisherman’s Strength is a nod to the distillery’s home town of Ullapool, which has a thriving fishing community. This is a Navy Strength edition, coming in at 57% ABV and it’s of no surprise to see the beautiful ombre bottle return, this time with a beautiful coastal blue hue. The flavour profile is described as juniper led with forest floor notes coming through and hints of ripe blueberry, cracked black pepper, pink pepper and a touch of spicy coriander.

About

The Highland Liquor Co. has grown from the village of Ullapool just as the village grew from the 1788 fishing station planned on the shores of Loch Broom. The original settlement of Ullapool, on Scotland’s West Highland coast, included a boat builder, a rope maker, a cooper, a blacksmith, a fish curer and a mason. Several of these crafts survive to this day and have been joined by many new makers including The Highland Liquor Co. Back in 1791, the original settlers in the first seven dwellings sought to establish the village by generating growth and this drive continues in the community today. In the spirit of these original settlers, The Highland Liquor Co. are the creators of exceptional handmade spirits in the North West Highlands.

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.

Production

Discreetly tucked away in the heart of the North West Highlands town, you’ll find the Highland Liquor Co. Distillery. All production aspects are undertaken at the distillery including distillation, bottling and labelling. The distillery houses two large, traditional style Alembic copper stills that are used to create Seven Crofts.
