Our punchy but balanced Navy Strength gin, defined by strong juniper and lemon flavours, finishing with lingering spice.

Inspired by Edinburgh’s rich naval heritage of cannons and the famous One O’clock Gun, our Cannonball Gin is a Navy Strength gin that lives up to its evocative name. Cannonball resurrects a historic style of gin commissioned by the British Navy, making this gin an homage to Edinburgh’s seafaring past.

Bottled at 57.2% ABV, Cannonball is 100% proof, and defined by intense juniper and Oriental spice. With twice the juniper content of our classic Edinburgh Gin, it packs quite the punch. Szechuan peppercorns add a spicy note while zesty lemon and orange balance out the citrus profile.

Cannonball is a strong, characterful gin that can be enjoyed straight up or in a G&T. It makes for a vigorously refreshing Dry Martini, served with a lemon twist to complement the gin’s peppery, zestier notes.
