Gimlet is a cocktail made of Gin and Lime juice. Our twist incorporates flavours that balance well with watermelon and mint. The Gimlet was a small tool used to tap barrels of spirits which were carried on British navy ships. Due to sailors growing a taste for using lime in their spirits to make them more palatable, this could be where the gimlet acquired its name. It wasn’t uncommon for Doctors on ships throughout the 19th century to recommend drinking gin with lime to help "wash the medicine down”.
