Royal Dock is a Navy strength gin based on the style of gin supplied by the Hayman's family and previous generations under the mark "Senior Service Gin" to both the Royal Navy and the merchant trade from 1863.

Based in London, they delivered to the Royal Victoria Yard at the Royal Dock, the largest of the three Admiralty Victualing Yards who were responsible for the provisions on board. Gin along with Rum was an essential part of the cargo on voyages around the world

This Navy strength gin, bottled at 57%, reflects the strength required to enable gunpowder to still light if the gin were spilt on it.

They named this style "Royal Dock" after the yard of the same name, located in Deptford on the Thames in South London, which was established in 1513 by Henry VIII. The Royal Dock yard was the largest of the Admiralty in England, with the other 2 in Gosport and Plymouth.

Over the following four centuries the Royal Dockyard became a storied location and the point of departure for some of the most significant ventures in British naval history. From these voyages onward, this Gin has travelled the world over.

Nose: A bright, crisp nose with notes of coriander and lemon complimenting a big juniper hit.

Palate: An enhanced citrus and floral aromatic flavour, smooth and intense with a full mouth feel.

Finish: A long refreshing and lingering finish.
