Fly Navy Gin 70cl

On 2nd August 1917, Commander E H Dunning Royal Navy became the first man to land an aircraft on a moving ship at sea. A century later, flying operations from the Nation’s flagship carrier HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH can be traced directly back to this world first event in naval aviation.

Curio Spirits has produced a new botanical gin – Fly Navy Gin – to mark the centenary of landing the first aircraft on a moving ship at sea. Given our close proximity to RNAS Culdrose in Helston, we wanted to create a gin to mark this important landmark.

Hand-crafted in Cornwall, in small batches, with carefully selected botanicals, including organic Madagascan vanilla, sansho peppers and local Cornish, Fly Navy gin is an earthy, citrus gin that is unique, full of character and can be enjoyed neat, as a G&T or in a cocktail.

A donation from the sale of each bottle will go to “Navy Wings”, keeping heritage Naval aircraft in the skies (navywings.org.uk).

Navy Wings keeps heritage Naval aircraft in the skies, telling the exciting story of the early pioneers of Naval flying to HMS Queen Elizabeth and her F35 jets. Funded entirely by public donations the charity restores, maintains and flies a collection of rare and historically significant naval aircraft which display and inspire millions of people each year at air shows around the country.

Based at RNAS Yeovilton the collection includes the only two airworthy Swordfish in the world, two Sea Furies, a Sea Hawk and Sea Vixen. Together with our associate collection, Navy Wings tells the nationally important story of flying from ships at sea from the First World War to the Fleet Air Arm of today.
