Cocktail Hour: The Nottingham Walrus and Ungava Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on July 30, 2018

North of the Ungava Peninsula (in Northern Quebec) within the body of water known as the Hudson Strait is an arctic island which was given the name, Nottingham Island, by English explorer Henry Hudson when he was exploring what was to become the Canadian North in the 1600s. The island was used for hunting and fishing by the surrounding Inuit communities, and it is known to harbour a large number of walrus during the summer months. The island and its summer inhabitants serve as the inspiration for the name of my cocktail which uses a Canadian Gin which was also inspired by the rugged Canadian North, Ungava Gin.

Note:

Here is a link to my recently revised review of Ungava Gin:

Review: Ungava Gin

“… The flavour of the Ungava Gin represents a nice melding of piny bitterness and herbaceous spiciness with lemon citrus. The floral elements within serve more as an accent than as a main attraction. I found myself drawn to the complex flavour profile which was moderately aggressive and perhaps more traditional than I expected …”

Please enjoy my review and cocktail.

Chimo!
