Gimlet
about the cocktail
In 1747, James Lind a Scottish surgeon, discovered that consumption of citrus fruits can prevent scurvy, one of the most common illnesses on board ship. In 1867 Lachlan Rose, the owner of a shipyard patented a process of preserving fruit using salts of sulphur. Once the benefits of drinking lime juice became more widely known, British sailors consumed it with gin and named it Gimlet.
