This light and summery cocktail is a twist on a naval classic, which hails back to the 19th century. Lime juice was highly prized in the navy, owing to its ability to fight scurvy which afflicted sailors sometimes fatally. Some officers began administering this “medicine” with gin, in order to mask the bitter taste of lime juice, which was the early seed of the gimlet, some say the source of where all this began was Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette. Lime juice, however, had very little shelf life and taking significant quantities of fresh limes onboard became problematic. Scottish entrepreneur Lauchlan Rose invented the worlds first ever fruit concentrate, Rose’s Lime juice, a way to transport lime in a preserved state. Ships began carrying the sweetened Rose’s Lime Juice and so the gimlet was born.
Our version is made from Salcombe Rose Sainte Marie gin, a double gold winning pink gin from Salcombe, Devon, a town with a long-established maritime history. Rosé Sainte Marie is inspired by the Sainte Marie lighthouse just off the coast of Marseille, and has been distilled using Mediterranean botanicals – the same as those that were carried to the UK from Southern France by Salcombe’s fruit schooner vessels in the 19th century. Delicately flavoured, fresh and smooth, Rosé Sainte Marie is an award-winning pink gin with an attractive perfume of Provence herbs and orange blossom finessed by lavender and lemon verbena.
To this we add a subtle bouquet of fresh raspberry, to enhance the summery Cote D’Azur vibe, for a crisp, refreshing and lightly fruited gin cocktail that will make you feel like you’re basking in an endless summer on the French Riviera.
