The Plymouth Gin Distillery was once a monastery and even a prison prior to becoming a distillery. The distillery’s proximity to the Royal William Victualling Yard in Plymouth made it an ideal location for supplying naval officers with gin. If you drank gin while in the British Royal Navy, it was probably Plymouth. A soft, classic gin, ideal for when you want a softer profile. Flavor is fairly neutral compared to a London Dry, with a touch of sweetness and complex underpinnings of pine, citrus and black pepper.
