British distiller Silent Pool is releasing a handcrafted gin that celebrates an iconic naval figure. As the demand for artisan spirits grows, this company offers a unique product for gin-loving history buffs.

The Admiral Collingwood Navy Strength spirit is a handcrafted gin that celebrates iconic naval figure Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood. Collingwood played a pivotal role in the 1905 Battle of Trafalgar and this product celebrates his legacy with a navy-grade spirit. The gin has an ABV of 57 percent and smooth taste. However, the bottle is what truly makes the gin standout from other spirits. The bottle features an embossed label with the detailed image of Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood. The label is designed to resemble parchment paper to give the bottle a bit of historical flare.

The specialty gin demonstrates that consumers are interested in more than just what is inside the bottle when it comes to buying liquor.
