The 1881 Honours Navy Strength Gin is a bold but balanced and exceptionally smooth high strength Scottish gin. 

Traditional gin botanicals such as juniper, cardamom and citrus have been expertly combined and blended with spring water from the Peebles Hydro private estate.

The gin takes its name in Honour of those injured during World War II when the hotel was used as a Military General Hospital.

Tasting Notes

Cardamon and dry citrus are at the forefront with piney juniper leading to a dry and spicy finish.

The perfect serve

Great when served over ice with a classic tonic and twist of orange peel. Also makes a perfect base for a number of cocktails including a Martini.

Meet the maker

1881 Distillery is based in the historic Peebles Hydro Hotel in the picturesque Scottish Borders town. The hotel has a long association with tennis and in the 1920s Peebles Hydro had more tennis courts than Wimbledon. During the many tennis touraments hosted at the hotel gin and tonic was a popular tipple with the crowds so the hotel decided to create a range of gins using local botanicals and natural spring water to celebrate its past. The distillery & gin school was named after the year the Peebles Hydropathic Hotel was first opened.
