One of the Icelandic heroes that were cheered by the ecstatic citizens of the little North Atlantic island with the fearsome Viking Thunder Clap, that drew huge attention from rest of the world at the FIFA World Cup 2018 – is actually the proud owner of the Glacier Gin.
Beside an impressive football career with both Champions League and World Cup appearances, then Rurik Gislason is the owner of this incredible gin, that is a homage to the retreating glaciers that still covers a two digits percentages of Iceland.
Due to the use of the ultra pure spring water from the glaciers, then the gin is pleasantly smooth with an legible taste of juniper. The interesting use of dandelion gives the gin an astringent earthy touch, that definitely give us a positive flashback to the childhood when the curiosity won over common sense tasting the white bitter dandelion juice from the stem. The bitterness adds some contrast to the delicate aromas from the used citrus fruits.
The idea behind the Glacier Gin is to create a perfect partner to your favorite tonic after spending a day in the nature, preferable on a Icelandic glacier. We’re agree- and due to the classic gin style, then it is truly matching almost all the tested tonics beautifully. So today our tonic recommendation is actually quite easy, just choose your favorite tonic…….and enjoy your perfect GT. Cheers!
