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.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with notes of forest woods and thyme with sweet wildflowers and earthy moss.

The palate leads with a surprising peppery bite, followed by a return of the pine and aspen notes with wildflowers, thyme, and other mixed herbs.

Finish
The finish is long for a Gin with a lingering note of Vermouth.

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
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.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
