WASHINGTON, D.C.— Washington, D.C based distillery, Jos. A. Magnus & Co., is proud to announce their next creation, Vigilant Navy Strength Gin. The next gin from Head Distiller Nicole Hassoun, creator of the award winning Vigilant Dry Gin, is crafted from 100% corn distillate, steeped and distilled with family made harissa, figs, fresh mint, fresh lemon, hops, and hibiscus.
This gin was designed to be the perfect base for exceptional cocktails. One ounce of the Vigilant Navy Strength Gin topped with soda and lemon is “like the best gin and tonic you have ever had, without the sugar”, says Hassoun “Because of its high proof, a little bit goes a long way- but the flavor can carry through anything”.
At 114 proof – Perfectly balanced and strong as hell, this gin will wake you up and put you to bed.
Jos. A. Magnus & Co. has garnered some of the nation’s top awards for their spirits. Re-established in 2015, the distillery is located at 2052 W. Virginia Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002. The limited first edition of Jos. A. Magnus Vigilant Navy Strength Gin can be purchased at the Jos. A. Magnus Distillery beginning Saturday, March 25, 2017.
About Jos. A. Magnus & Co.
In 1892, Joseph Alexander Magnus set out to create the world’s greatest whiskeys, gins, and other spirits through the founding of Jos. A. Magnus & Co., and in doing so, became one of the most successful pre-prohibition spirits producers in the nation. A man of valor and honor, Joseph learned the value of doing things right and doing them with passion. Ever in control of his own destiny, he silenced his stills on his own terms when Prohibition came knocking, but when a bottle of 122 year old bourbon was discovered by Joseph’s great grandson, he knew it was time to bring back “remarkable spirits for remarkable people.” Proudly re-established in 2015 in Washington, D.C., we at Jos. A. Magnus & Co. are honored to have garnered the nation’s top awards for our spirits using the very same techniques Joseph Magnus did over 100 years ago.
