The boldest of the West Winds fleet, The Broadside is a Navy Strength (58%) gin, made to honour the most brazen, aggressive and fearless of naval war tactics where warships released a close-range barrage of firepower from every gun along one side of the hull. This Navy Strength gin is as bold and brutish as this manoeuvre.
Its firepower comes from the delicious Sea Parsley seasoned with Margaret River sea salt. The Broadside Gin may be the first spirit in the world to apply seawater to its core, showing intense tones of sea salt and lifted citrus notes. The Broadside’s higher alcohol percentage amplifies the aroma of the botanicals and is a perfect example of what high proof spirits can offer.

Tasting Note: Beguiling and distinctive sea parsley seasoned with Margaret River sea salt. Utilising umami and mouth feel taste sensations, it is up there with salty caramel and is the churros of drinking.
