A World first.

Yes. You’ve read it correctly. Black Tomato Gin is the world’s first ever tomato Gin. It’s produced by Dutch VOC Gin in Kampen distillery in Netherlands, more precisely a small fisherman town of Bruinesse. The recipe was created by Leon Meijers and Alfred Sandee. The inspiration and the ingredients came from the location; the love for Spirits came from the heart. The black tomatoes are grown next to the distillery; local seawater is also added to the mix. Leon and Alfred were always entrepreneurial, but they dabbled in different businesses, before settling for Gin-making. Why the funny combination though?

Well, one liked tomatoes the other liked Gin and voilà. What’s more – the funny combination works! Although the complete recipe remains a mystery, we know it includes tomatoes, juniper berries and salt water. All the ingredients are processed as separate distillates, before sea water is added. The concentrate is developed with grain alcohol, then cut down to 42.3% ABV. Packed in a nifty black matter bottle, you get a sense of the fact that their product is tremendously well thought out.

Artisan, organic small-batch Gins are all the rage right now, new brands are formed every day, but we haven’t seen something as unique as this in a long time. It stands out. The tomatoes give this bad boy an incredibly fresh feel. The soft, delicate notes hint at a secret ingredient, which we cannot quite pinpoint yet. It works well as a cocktail Spirit, it's up to par on its own. You say tomato, we say to … p-notch Gin.

Hansen,
aromaless, interesting, yet, definitely not my ‘cup-o-t’. clean tasting tho, there is a hint of tomato, but almost undistinguishable
Andrei
Andrei,
Interesting. But too soft aftertaste. Ideal for young generation and hipsters. No enough rough and hard for real gin lovers.
