Confused by Plymouth gin

I'm one of the people who used to purchase Plymouth gin before they raised the price by around 50%. So, I haven't really paid attention to it for a while.
I was in a store the other day and saw two Plymouths: one at around 80 proof, and a navy strength (57%ABV) version.
The "old" version of Plymouth was, IIRC, around 94 proof. So, in between the two current versions.
My question is simply: what is up with that?
Their sloe gin is not good it is great. I got it for about $37 over a year ago. at $14 I would have bought every bottle they have. A little goes a very long way though
With respect to Plymouth's gin, I thought it was always 80 proof and then they recently introduced the Navy Strenght to the US.
I was confused by the switch to the currently ugly, heavy, green glass bottle but didn't realize the proof may have changed. I will have to check - I still pour the new bottles into the last old one (blue label on clear bottle) as I like it better and it's footprint in the cabinet is much more efficient.
