DR. NICOLA NICE, cEo & founder

Pomp & Whimsy brings modern sensibilities to the tradition of gin making, by infusing classically distilled gin with a delightfully flavorful botanical liqueur. Founded by Dr. Nicola Nice, a trained sociologist, self-confessed cocktail obsessive, and advisor to some of world’s top spirits companies, Pomp & Whimsy is a cordial style gin inspired by the female culinary writers and home brewers of the Victorian era. In an industry where women are rarely given center stage, Nicola is bringing fancy, modernity, and even a touch of femininity, to this wonderful old world spirit.

Made from scratch in Los Angeles from a select blend of 16 natural and whole ingredients, Pomp & Whimsy is a highly refined, yet playfully sensorial spirit, that is both graceful by itself, and effortlessly dressed, up or down. Enjoy by itself, topped with something bubbly or as a gin modifier in classic cocktails. It’s gin, reimagined.
