Pernod Ricard is set to add a new variant to its Plymouth gin brand in the US. Plymouth Navy Strength, which is distilled from grain in Plymouth, England, forms part of the brand's stable in the UK, along with Plymouth Original and Plymouth Sloe Gin.

Pernod took control of Plymouth when it bought Vin & Sprit back in 2008.

Industry observers speculated at the time that Pernod might offload the brand in favour of its Beefeater gin, but the company has since refocussed Plymouth within its portfolio.
