VIDEO: Bartender Benjamin Lee creates cocktail with Bareksten Gin

Bareksten Gin Benjamin Lee

Benjamin Lee, co-founder of Oslo bar Merkur, presents a new cocktail he has created with Bareksten Gin from Norway.

In this video, he discusses his thoughts on bartending as he makes the drink that mixes the gin with sherry, Jamaican rum, bergamot liqueur and Seville orange wine.

Benjamin opened Merkur with Alexander Kloster-Jensen in the St Hanshaugen district of Oslo last year, specialising in pure wine and natural sake as well as cocktails.

Distributed in the UK by JBE Imports, Bareksten Gin is made in small batches by bartender and distiller Stig Bareksten using a rich recipe of botanicals, many from Norway.
