Dutch courage and Indonesian spirit

The story goes that Jacobus “Bobby” Alfons migrated from Indonesia to the Netherlands in 1950 and began infusing his own Jenever - Gin hybrid with Indonesian spices. Then, in 2012, his grandson Sebastian van Bokkel finds an old bottle in his grandmother’s house, asks questions, and sets out to reproduce the recipe. Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin is a product of Herman Janson of Schiedam who have been making liquors in the Netherlands since 1777.

They go to a bit of trouble to make Bobby’s Dry. There are a total of eight botanicals, but each one is infused and distilled separately. That adds quite a bit of control over the process, but takes longer. And In case you were wondering, those botanicals include lemongrass, clove, coriander, cubeb pepper, cinnamon, rose hips, fennel, and it just would not be Gin without a helping of juniper.

They say that Bobby's Schiedam Dry Gin is a recipe for “Dutch courage and Indonesian spirit” and we’ll buy that.

While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
