Oak Gimlet timber floor boards are a unique twist on a a light natural colouring. A soft warm undertone and hints of pinky hues offset by a calming grey tone in the tighter grain. Splits and knots are coloured dark for interest.
As part of the Vienna Woods Distilled collection, the oak is sourced from Slow Grown FSC-certified Lithuanian Oak forests and produced in Europe. The extreme cold winters in Lithuania slows the growth of the oak to produce a very hard, dense wood. The extra long oak boards up to 2400mm bring a grand ambiance to any interior.
Available in a matt lacquer on 180mm wide boards.
As a special order this product is available in a prime/ clean grade, a natural finish and even in wider boards or parquet options.
These wood floors garnish the name from the infamous cocktail; The Gimlet.
The gimlet is a cocktail traditionally made with equal parts gin and lime cordial, as suggested in various sources, including a 1928 description and the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book. However, modern variations tend to use more gin and less sweetness.
The origin of the cocktail’s name is a matter of debate. Some believe it’s named after the tool used for drilling small holes, possibly referring to its sharp taste. Others claim it may be associated with Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Gimlette, who supposedly added lime cordial to gin to combat scurvy during long sea voyages.
