Iceland doesn’t make simply vodka anymore. The worldwide craft distilling craze of the previous decade has introduced us all sorts of Icelandic spirits, most just lately Himbrimi Gin. Distilled at Brunnur Distillery within the tiny island nation’s capital metropolis, Reykjavik, this gin, named for Iceland’s loon chook, is available in two types, Previous Tom (which stays one thing of a rarity) and the bottle we’re reviewing as we speak, Winterbird London Dry. Distilled utilizing Iceland’s plentiful geothermal power and native spring water (mentioned to have an unusually excessive pH), this gin incorporates a wide range of distinctive botanicals together with wild angelica flowers, natural honey, and Arctic thyme, along with the required juniper (which is natural, for what it’s price). Ideas comply with.

Poured into the glass, a burst of juniper instantly presents itself, however issues coalesce rapidly into a chic bouquet that’s extra natural and floral than juniper-forward. Candy forest ground notes are paired with recent herbs, honeysuckle, licorice, and lavender. There’s sufficient juniper berry within the combine to maintain this one clearly London Dry, however the complement of aromas provides a complexity you don’t all the time get with this fashion. The palate can also be a welcome departure from typical kind with recent notes of pine and candy sap devoid of the attribute earthy chunk. The mouthfeel is properly rounded, nearly creamy, and it’s impressively approachable with only a gentle little bit of peppery warmth on the end. Mild notes of eucalyptus, thyme, angelica root, and rosehip give issues an ethereal high quality. The end is clear and accented with a little bit of vanilla and wintergreen. A really pleasing gin, but it surely’s maybe somewhat too fragile for a few of your bolder cocktails.

80 proof.
