A hand-infused compound Gin from Iceland with a woodsy, herbal profile.

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 Old Tom Gin is an interesting concoction that Óskar made to be a fishing companion sipper. The base is their signature Himbrimi Gin infused with juniper, wild Arctic thyme, angelica seeds, and lemon zest before being lightly sweetened with honey. Since the infusions are infused rather than distilled, you may see small bits of sediment in the bottle — this is perfectly normal and evidence of the hand-crafted nature of the Spirit. The final Spirit is brought to proof at 40% ABV and has the rich color of Whiskey.

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.

Olivier
Olivier,
A very spicy gin with a strong aroma where you can clearly taste the different botanicals used and almost no ethanol on the palate, it is quite dry and bitter. I really appreciated it.

Benjamin,
Lovely botanical old tom from Iceland. It has more astringency/dryness like dry gins, but rounded woodiness in the middle and sweet cherry and botanicals on the end. We discovered this at an amazing gin bar in Reykyavik, and were glad to find it at the duty free to bring a bottle home. Highly recommend.

Loving the botanicals in this small batch craft gin from Iceland. Had the fortune to find it on our vacay and have been ordering it online ever since!
