In 1689, shortly after the Dutch King William III – better known as William of Orange – was proclaimed King Of England, Ireland and Scotland, he introduced gin, a traditionally Dutch drink, to London. Soon, of course, the volume sold daily exceeded that of beer and ale.
More than 3 centuries later, the original recipe was found buried deep in a dark corner of the Royal British Library’s rare book section.
The result was Gin 1689 – a gin that fuses English and Dutch culture together, produced by one of Holland’s oldest distillers and based on that
same 350 year old recipe XXXIII of ‘The distiller of London’.
This is the exquisite pink version.
Gin1689 The Queen Mary Edition is named after the wife of King William of Orange the Third. It’s based on the authentic Gin 1689 recipe that was found in the British Library where strawberries and raspberries are added to the distillation process to give the gin a pink hue as well as fruity flavour.
The original 320 year old recipe recommends drinking with fresh strawberries and raspberries.
