Tastes damn fine with tonic, ice and a slice of pink grapefruit. 

The boldest of the West Winds fleet, The Broadside is a Navy Strength Gin with (58% ABV), made to honour the most brazen, aggressive and fearless of naval war tactics where warships released a close-range barrage of firepower from every gun along one side of the hull. This Navy Strength Gin is as bold as this manoeuvre.

Its intensity of flavour comes from the delicious Sea Parsley seasoned with Margaret River Sea Salt. The Broadside Gin was likely the first spirit in the world to incorporate filtered seawater. The Broadside’s higher alcohol percentage amplifies the aroma of the botanicals and is a perfect example of what high proof spirits can offer.

NAVY STRENGTH GIN

Alcohol has been an important part of Naval exploration for hundreds of years. Sailors from the Royal British Navy were given daily rations (or tots) all the way up until July 31st 1970, the gimlet was designed to stave of scurvy and water was often turned into beer so that it would last the longest of voyages, even on Captain Cook’s crossing to Australia- On 1 August 1768 as Captain Cook was fitting out the Endeavour for its voyage to Australia, Nathaniel Hulme wrote to Joseph Banks recommending that he take “a quantity of Molasses and Turpentine, in order to brew Beer with, for your daily drink, when your Water becomes bad. ... [B]rewing Beer at sea will be peculiarly useful in case you should have stinking water on board; for I find by Experience that the smell of stinking water will be entirely destroyed by the process of fermentation.”

Spirits were particularly important as they could last almost indefinitely and if they were of a high enough ABV could be stored safely next to gunpowder without worry of crippling a ship’s battle capacity. Sailors of old figured out that if a spirit was of a high enough ABV it could be spilled on gunpowder without inhibiting the flammable nature of the substance. Before Bartholemew Sikes invention of an accurate hydrometer in 1816 sailors would mix gunpowder with a portion of the spirit they were going to purchase into a paste and then attempt to light it. If it ignited they could be assured of the spirits potency and the safety of their gunpowder stocks. This became known as the ‘proof’ of the spirit which we now know as 57% ABV and thus Navy Strength was born.
