Looking for more ways to get vegetables in your diet? Yeah, neither were we but this sure seems like a good way to do it! In a gin that can only be described as beautifully beety and deliciously spicy, our Jörd also comes with a cheeky little burst of citrus and a wild trifecta of references. Combining the power of an Old Nordic name whilst alluding to the goddess of earth, and at the same time raising a glass to one of the greatest office-colleague-imitation scenes in television history, this gin is complete in so many ways.
Fever-Tree Indian Tonic with basil and whole black peppercorns.
The Parisian Nights cocktail first made its written appearance in the 1955 Booth’s Gin publication “An Anthology of Cocktails” in celebration of acting goddess Yvonne Arnaud. This maven of both the stage and the screen dominated

The French 75 is a tribute to the 75 millimeter field guns which helped gain victory for the French and American troops in WWI. The recipe itself has seen numerous styles over the decade, but at its core, this celebratory cocktail has always had a triumphant taste to it. So it seemed appropriate to us that we would choose this very beverage to showcase our Jörd as we cheered for the US victory over the UK … in the battle between the two versions of The Office.
