Gimlet

About The Cocktail

The first whispers of the Gimlet appeared in 1953 in Raymond Chandlers book ‘The Long Goodbye’. Its name has also been linked to Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette who would add Gin to the Lime juice he’d administer to sailors in order to ward of scurvy. Gin and Navy have a long and complex relationship, the term Navy Strength Gin was actually created after Sailors would test the strength of their alcohol by mixing it with gunpowder. If the gunpowder then refused to light, they then knew that they’d received weak and therefore subpar Gin. You don’t want to come between an Old Salt and his Gin.
