“5. Kimerud Gin

Where It’s From: TranbyNorway
What Makes It Special: Kimerud, Norse for “hillside,” comes from a rural farm distillery in the knolls near Lier. Looking at photos, it appears exactly as one would imagine a tiny Norwegian distillery in the middle of, well, nowhere to be. But that bucolic smog-free landscape provides clean growing conditions for many of the 22 botanicals used in master distiller Ståle Johnsen’s gin.

After distillation, only pure mountain water is added.”    To read more of her article, click here.
