Inspired by scents of herbs growing along river banks, in 2016, Icelandic artist Óskar Ericsson set about making a gin to take with him on fishing trips. So Himbrimi Old Tom emerged.

(sample bottle batch No.6, bottle: 492) Clear but with sediment in suspension, deep coppery amber.
Pine cones, clove and vanilla with herbal and floral notes.
Herbal and spicy with bitter resinous pine, clove, black tea-like tannins and floral notes. Faint honeyed sweetness partially balances bitterness.
Long herbal finish with lingering lightly bitter pine and tannins.
Flavouring by cold infusion (the maceration of botanicals in neutral spirit) rather than re-distillation gives this old tom gin a golden aged-like appearance. Bitter notes extracted during infusion somewhat mask attractive floral notes.
