A modern Gin crafted from a three hundred year-old ingredient list written by a king.

Amsterdam Craft Gin Company was founded by Alexander Janssens and Patrick van der Peet. As Dutch natives transplanted to London, they felt a kinship with Dutch King William III — known as William of Orange — who moved from Holland to England to assume the English throne and shortly thereafter began distilling a Spirit from his homeland — Gin. They researched old records to find Willaim’s original recipe and have recreated it at Herman Jansen Distillers in Schiedam, launching Gin 1689 in the UK last year. They are growing quickly and have recently taken on investors to facilitate stretching the brand internationally.

After deciphering an ingredient list from the 1600s, Alexander and Patrick passed the task of crafting them into a balanced Gin Spirit to Herman Jansen. That list of botanicals included juniper, dried quince, pippin apple, lemon and orange zest, nutmeg, anise, and clove. Gin 1689 Authentic Dutch Dry Gin is a thoroughly modern Gin made from a king’s old shopping list, and that’s pretty cool.

Smartass Corner:
The "1689" in the name refers to the year that William of Orange invaded Southwest England and deposed James I — assuming the throne and bringing Gin to England for the first time.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
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.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
