Scottish Distillery Claims to Make World's Strongest Gin

by Jessie Donofrio on Feb 21, 2018 in Liquor

Twin Rivers Distillery released Naked Uncut, a 77% ABV gin, which claims to be the strongest gin in the world.

The previous record holder was a 76% ABV gin made by a small distillery in Sweden. This new Scottish variety that is just 1% more was launched at a gin festival earlier this month in the UK, and only 101 bottles were made available for purchase. Other spirits in the distillery’s portfolio includes a rhubarb-flavored Old Tom gin and a variety of whiskeys.

You may remember back in May of last year that Bombay Sapphire accidentally made a batch of 154 proof gin (77% ABV), so Twin Rivers is not the first to concoct a batch this strong, but they may be the only ones doing it purposefully.

Ryan Rhodes, a brand ambassador for Twin River, said to The Drinks Business: “By developing Uncut, we really wanted to push the boundaries – but obviously ask people to enjoy it sensibly. You have to appreciate that most gins are 40-50% ABV so care must be taken when drinking this spirit and a small amount definitely goes a long way.”

Twin Rivers suggests serving the gin over ice with a twist of lemon. We imagine something this strong would be nice mixed in a cocktail as well.
