Description

The Story

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, he also introduced a typical Dutch item to Britain. Genever, soon abbreviated to Dutch Gin and then simply Gin, which became hugely popular.


Now, over 3 centuries later, the Amsterdam Craft Gin Company has re-introduced that authentic recipe from back in time. Founder Alexander Janssens studied the archives of the British Library to retrieve the original recipe notes. It took him almost two years to find these.
With help from the Dutch master distiller Herman Jansen from Schiedam they developed and revived the centuries – old recipe that conquered the Britain in 1689.
The result is Gin 1689, a tribute to Dutch craftsmanship over three centuries ago.
