The World’s Strongest Gins
Over the last few years there has been a battle of the ‘strengths’ in seeking to produce the world strongest Gin.
Until then Overproof / Navy Strength Gins were usually distilled at 57%.
Starting in 2015 the Swedish Smogen Whisky Distillery took the ABV of their Gin to new heights producing a super strength Gin at a whopping 76% – Strane Uncut..
In 2017 Still River launched it’s Naked Uncut Gin at 77% to become, at least temporarily, the world strongest Gin.
To save water, a valuable commodity in South Africa, Pineaar & Son decided to release their Orient and Empire Gins as Draught Editions at 80% ABV.
Having started the super strength trend, Strane sought to regain the top spot with Strane Ultra Uncut at 82.5%.
Sinner’s Blackout at 79% and Sinner’s Korsakov at 83% are two, fairly unknown, ultra strength Belgium Gins, the latter of which, held the record for a while.
At 75% Turbo Island Gin from Bristol Dry Gin was until recently England’s strongest Gin ….
Settling the battle once and for all Anno Distillers in Kent launched Anno Extreme in 2020 making it officially the World’s Strongest Gin at an eye watering, lethal 95% ABV!!!
Can anyone beat the Anno Extreme ABV record??
