THUNDERFLOWER GIN - FIRESHIP 58%
Thunderflower Gin is run and made by Dominic and Anicca O'Nions from Devon.
Apparently, in old English folk lore the small white flower, the "Thunderflower", used to grow on thatched houses, and it was encouraged because it apparently warded off witches and thunderstrikes!
Used in 17th century naval warfare, Fire Ships were wooden ships packed with combustibles and gunpowder, set alight and steered whilst ablaze into the enemy fleet.
This is not just a stronger version of their Thunderflower Gin, but an entirely new recipe.
Only pure Dartmoor spring water is added to dilute the spirit to 58% ABV, the strength at which gunpowder will still burn even if soaked in gin.
