Gimlet. The classic cocktail that's simple and elegant, just like our AT FIVE GIN. And who doesn't love a drink that's easy to make and even easier to drink? But don't be fooled by the Gimlet's simplicity, because this drink has a lot of history and personality.

The Gimlet is believed to have been created in the 19th century, when the British Royal Navy began adding lemon juice to the sailors' daily gin rations to prevent scurvy. Clever as they were, the sailors mixed the lemon juice with gin to create a refreshing and delicious cocktail.

But it wasn't until the beginning of the 20th century that the Gimlet became a popular drink in England. And it was thanks to the famous British novelist Graham Greene that the drink became known all over the world. In his spy novel "The Confidential Agent", published in 1939, a character orders a Gimlet and declares: "The Gimlet is almost like a perfume. It's the only cocktail I know that's clean and refreshing. It doesn't let you mix with the drink."

The original Gimlet recipe is simple, but don't be fooled by the lack of ingredients.
