Tarbert Legbiter Navy Strength Gin
Tarbert Legbiter was originally bottled as a limited edition Kintyre Gin Club bottling but was so popular we rebranded it and made it part of our core range. And thank goodness we did – it has won gold in the High Strength category at the Scottish Gin Awards TWO years in row!
A navy strength gin, bottled at 57% ABV, Tarbert Legbiter packs a punch but this aromatic spirit is wonderfully smooth and flavoursome. The nose is light with delicate floral notes, warming into gentle spice and pine aromas.
Distilled with hibiscus flower and pink peppercorns, it is sweet and light on the palate with a floral midsection and a dry, lingering spice finish.
All our products are distilled using our very own hydro electricity, generated on site to power our small copper pot gin still. We aim to keep sustainability at the core of everything we do and endeavour to maintain our currant climate positive status.
57% Vol 50cl
Serve: It’s delicious with a light tonic, garnished with pink peppercorns.
We named our navy strength spirit after a Kintyre Legend – Magnus Barelegs, King of Norway in 1093, who claimed Kintyre as his own by circumnavigating the peninsula. He refused to let the isthmus at Tarbert ruin his plan – he simply had his boat dragged across and declared Kintyre an island. Legbiter was the name of his sword and is a fitting moniker for our navy strength gin.
