Kimerud Navy Strength Gin 57%
Kimerud Navy Strength Gin is the strongest of the internationally awarded Kimerud Gin family.
To create this gin Master Distiller Ståle Håvaldsen Johnsen distills a careful balance of 22 fine botanicals with pure mountain water, to create a full-bodied pallet and aroma.
The cold Norwegian climate adds to the quality of Kimerud Gin as it delays the growth of the herbs bringing a richness that is paramount to the final taste. This gin is distilled in the same way as a «London Dry Gin» would be.
The most unique trait of Kimerud Navy Strength’s botanicals is the Golden Root. During the Viking age (800-1050), this herb was considered a delicacy, with magical properties. It continues to grow wild in the North of Norway where we handpick the flower & root along the seaside. The Arctic Sea gives our Navy Strength gin its flavour and contributes to its raw taste and smell.
This gin is a tribute to Jørgen Kristian Has Nilsen, the grandfather of Ståle. Once a dockyard owner, ship builder, and repairman in even the harshest Norwegian weather. Kimerud Navy Strength Gin is a toast to him and the many others who work tough conditions to provide for their people.
Kimerud Navy Strength, is an excellent sipping gin. As such we also recommend to use to the spirit in a Dry Martini, Gibson and other gin based cocktails.
