Kimerud Gin

KIMERUD Gin is a highly awarded gin (double gold medal CWSC 2017). It is well balanced due to the careful blending of 22 fine botanicals, the most unique of which is Golden Root.
The cold climate in Norway adds to the quality of KIMERUD Gin as it delays the growth of the herbs, bringing a richness that is paramount to the final taste.

handcrafted gin

Kimerud is a family owned distillery built on Kimerud Farm, which dates back to 1785. Kimerud Farm is located in Lier municipality, west of Oslo. The clean air and rich soil here gives the best conditions for growing high quality herbs and berries. Kimerud farm is the home of Gins and an Aquavit which are recipients of the most prestigious blind test awards by some of the best chefs and sommeliers in the world.
Kimerud products owe a lot to the Norwegian geography, temperature and heritage. The cold climate in Norway adds to the quality of Kimerud`s product, as it delays the growth of the herbs and berries, and therfore brings a richness that contribute greatly to the final taste.
The spirit is distilled 5 times and we add only pure mountain water after distillation. Distilled in the same way as an “London Dry Gin”.
Some of the botanicals we use includ`s Juniper, Coriander, Ginger Root, Walnut, Mint, Angelica, Orange and Lemon Peel. An aroma of the sea can be noted in the gin as we use the herb «Rhodiola Rosea» picked on the cliff of the Arctic`s Norwegian sea.

Tasting Notes:
Balanced with delicious hints of spices, subtle notes of earth & sea and fine citrus aromas. The finish is long and pleasant with taste of fresh grass and a little sweetness.

About the producer

Kimerud

Interest in liquor production began for our Master Distiller, Ståle Håvaldsen Johnsen in 2006, when travelling in the picturesque mountains of Norwegian West coast with his wife Barbara and father-in-law - Jan Obuch who served a home-made herbal liquor of high complexity.

​While camping at World Heritage site Geirangerfjord, the bottle was passed around the fire and Ståle was excited by its intriguing distillation process and the power of herb essences.

He became determined to learn more and eventually, create his own signature spirit.



Jan is a recognized nature scientist employed at university botanical garden. His accomplished knowledge of herbal properties and characteristics was achieved through his travellers around the world.

​Ståle learned from Jan and started his own spirit-making journey in 2009.

He became acquainted with skilled Scandinavian bartenders and learned about use of herbs and spirits in cocktails.

After many rounds of testing and sampling, Ståle has at last created his first gin in 2014. Today he have made a range of handcrafted small batch highly awarded gins and an aquavit, all distilled, stored and bottled at lovely Kimerud farm in Lier, West of Oslo.
