North of the Ungava Peninsula within the body of water known as the Hudson Strait is an arctic island which was named Nottingham Island by English explorer Henry Hudson in the 1600s. The island has been used historically 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.
