Gin 1689, a century-old recipe brought back to life! During the so-called Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689, William of Orange didn’t only chase away the British king, but he also introduced a typical Dutch item to the British island. Genever, soon abbreviated to Dutch gin. Gin soon became very popular among the British population.
Now, 350 years later, the Amsterdam Craft Gin Company relaunches the authentic recipe from that time. Founder Alexander Janssens studied the archives of the British Library to retrieve the original recipe. It took him almost two years to find it. With help from the master distiller Herman Jansen from Schiedam they developed and revived the century-old recipe that conquered the British island in 1689.
The result is Gin 1689, a tribute to the Dutch craftsmanship of over three centuries ago. A beautiful combination of juniper and dried quince and pippin (apple), lemon and orange peel, nutmeg, aniseed and clove.
It’s as modern as you like!
‘Gin1689 The Queen Mary Edition’ is named after the wife of King William of Orange the Third. It’s based on the same 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.
