Join us for a dinner with Kimerud

From Norway, the land of the midnight sun, we bring you Kimerud. Distilled from potatoes and 23 botanicals all harvested from the small, artisanal distillery’s farm.
There are four Gins: Kimerud Gin; Wild Grade Gin; Kimerud Hillside Aged Gin, and Pink Gin.
In fact, Kimerud Gin is the highest awarded Norwegian Gin and has received high honors in several international competitions.
One taste will make you a gin lover!
Please join us at Blu Grotto in Oceanport for our special

It’s a great opportunity to discover an exceptional gin.

Thirsty Thursday: Gimlet

Gimlet

GimletWhat shall we do with the drunken sailor? Note that your cordial can be shop-bought or homemade and it’s fun to mix it up with the seasons.

You’ll need:
2 oz Kimerud Hillside Gin
1 oz  lime cordial

This ratio of two parts gin to one part cordial dances in the glass. Stir down, pour into a glamorous coupe and garnish how you please.
