Set Sail with Tarquin's The Seadog Navy Strength Gin: A Detailed Tasting Adventure

Ahoy there, gin enthusiasts! Prepare to be swept away by the bold flavours and maritime inspiration of Tarquin's The Seadog Navy Strength Gin. Distilled in the ruggedly beautiful North Cornwall, this award-winning spirit embodies the wild spirit of the Atlantic Ocean and promises a truly unforgettable tasting experience.

Award-Winning Strength and Cornish Provenance

Crowned "World's Best Gin" at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Tarquin's The Seadog lives up to its name. Bottled at a powerful 57% ABV (alcohol by volume), it harks back to the era of "Navy Strength" gins. This referred to the minimum alcohol content required by the Royal Navy to ensure gunpowder would still ignite even if soaked in gin.

However, The Seadog is far from a fiery brute. Southwestern Distillery, the passionate minds behind Tarquin's gin, have crafted a spirit that balances its strength with a symphony of botanicals.

A Nose that Whispers of the Cornish Coast

The first impression you'll receive is a refreshingly bold juniper aroma, the cornerstone of any great gin. But The Seadog offers so much more. Hints of cracked black pepper add a touch of warmth, while candied citrus peels like orange and lemon introduce a wave of zesty intrigue. Subtle floral notes, reminiscent of violets, add a touch of elegance, creating a complex and inviting aroma that evokes the wild beauty of the Cornish coast.

A Taste Bud Expedition: From Pine Forests to Spice and Citrus

As you sip The Seadog, prepare for a flavour odyssey. The initial juniper presence intensifies, transporting you to a crisp pine forest. But the journey doesn't end there. Rich spices like cardamom and cinnamon emerge, adding a touch of warmth and depth. Zesty tangerine cuts through the richness, keeping the palate invigorated. A surprising sweetness, reminiscent of almonds and violets, lingers on the finish, rounding out the experience and leaving you wanting more.

The Seadog's Versatility: Unlocking its Potential

The beauty of Tarquin's The Seadog lies in its adaptability. Enjoy it neat to appreciate the full spectrum of flavours, savouring the interplay of juniper, spice, citrus, and floral notes. For a slightly tamer experience, add a splash of cool, filtered water. The water will "bloom" the botanicals, bringing out their subtle nuances and creating a smoother drinking experience.

Classic Cocktails with a Seadog Twist

The Seadog also shines in classic gin cocktails. Here are a couple of suggestions to get you started:

  • The Seadog G&T: This is a must-try. Fill a highball glass with ice, add a generous measure of The Seadog (50ml), and top with your favourite premium tonic water. Garnish with a wedge of grapefruit and a sprig of rosemary for a touch of Cornish flair.
  • The Plymouth Seadog: This martini variation is perfect for those who appreciate a drier gin cocktail. Combine 50ml of The Seadog with 15ml of dry vermouth in a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Beyond the Classics: Experimentation Awaits

The Seadog's robust flavour profile makes it a fantastic base for more adventurous cocktail creations.  Experiment by incorporating ingredients that complement its botanicals, such as fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme, different citrus fruits, or even flavoured tonics.

A Seadog for Every Occasion

Tarquin's The Seadog Navy Strength Gin is more than just a spirit; it's an experience. Its bold flavours and maritime inspiration make it the perfect companion for a cosy night in or a celebratory gathering.

So, set sail on your own flavour adventure with The Seadog. Whether you enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in a creative cocktail, this award-winning gin is sure to leave a lasting impression.
