GIMLET

A fresh, simple and now popular take on the classic Plymouth Gin cocktail created by the British Royal Navy in the 1800s. Originally a combination of Plymouth Gin and Rose’s Lime Cordial (taken on-board ship from 1867 to prevent scurvy). The Gimlet migrated to cocktail bars; where Plymouth Gin and Rose’s Lime Cordial were stirred down and served ‘up. Today, homemade cordials or this fresh version are the GO!
