A super smooth Icelandic Gin that cares about nature.

In 2014, local Icelandic artist Óskar Ericsson decided to create a Gin that reflected the natural botanicals and environment of his home country… something that we could take with him on his fishing trips and into the Icelandic wilderness. To this day he still collects all the local botanicals himself — by hand — during the summer months along the riverbanks where he walks. He infuses his compound Gin and then hand-numbers each bottle of his limited production.

Himbrimi Winterbird London Dry Gin is a very special London Dry Gin that’s slowly distilled with wild Icelandic botanicals, including wild arctic thyme and angelica flowers. The distilling process uses geothermal water and the result is a super smooth Gin. Bring out your crispest tonic and blow your own mind with a superb G&T or make your fav Gin-forward cocktail. BTW, 5% of the revenue will be donated for nature conservation in Iceland. (We want those wild botanicals thriving for a very long time!)

Smartass Corner:
"Himbrimi" is the Icelandic word for the common loon, and translates literally as "heaven howler." In England, it is called a "diver" because it dives into the water to eat small fish and crustaceans.

Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
