Review:

This Gimlet has a split spirit base of 50/50 gin and aquavit and 50/50 lime and lemon with lime cordial proving extra citrusy richness. A splash of Swedish punsch alongside the aquavit both adds to the flavour and Viking name.

History:

Created in April 2021 by yours truly at the suggestion of fellow discerning drinker, Nicholas Fiennes.
