Is this available in the US? I don't seem to have any luck in locating this gin. Have called several stores and posted on local boards. Any info appreciated. Thanks.

    Sadly, I'm pretty sure the Navy Strength is not available in the US. If you're looking for a higher proof Gin, you might want to give Martin Miller's Westbourne Strength Gin a shot. I believe it's pretty easy to get, and is a pretty tasty Gin.

      Have you tried Beverages and More, they might be able to special order it for you.

        Plymouth NS isn't available in the US, only in the UK.

          Is this a stronger type of Gin or a brand?

            Its a stronger type of Plymouth Gin:

            -Plymouth Gin Original Strength 41.2% abv

            -Plymouth Gin Navy Strength 57% abv

              I have recently become a gin drinker. Found Plymouth with the help of the hounds here. Gin and club soda is sooo refreshing. Plymouth won a taste testing against Tanqueray Ten at my house. Plymouth was favored by myself my sister and my brother in law. So that is why I am curious about Navy strength. Thanks for the replies. I will have to wait for someone to visit from the UK to try Plymouth NS. PS we also did a taste test of the chopped liver from The Second Ave Deli vs Waldbaums super market. Waldbaums won 4 to 1. Thanks again.

          Thanks to all who replied with good info. I did contact the importer Absolut and thier reply was that it is not and not likely to become available in the USA. Not really looking for a higher proof gin as much as the other Plymouth. Anyone flying in from the UK to JFK? Just kidding, well, not really.
          Thanks again.
