If only the New York Knicks scored as well as their namesake, Knickerbocker Gin … there would be a few more championship seasons in New Amsterdam. 
 
New Holland Brewing Company was the brain-child of two college buddies—Jason Spaulding and Brett Vander Kamp. They launched their little enterprise back in 1996, at the leading edge of the craft brewing and distilling movement. Based in Holland, Michigan, they have grown formidably, but have remained staunchly independent. Today they brew a wide range of beers and, in 2005, began distilling spirits, ranging from Whiskeys, Rums, an Orange Liqueur, and Gins.
 
What’s a “knickerbocker” anyway? Well, it’s pants … as in, “don’t get your knickers in a bunch!” It’s also as in “The New York Knicks,” and we all know that New York was once called “New Amsterdam” right? Amsterdam in is Holland … New Holland brewing … get it? Knickerbocker Gin is, at its heart, a London Dry style Gin, and a very nice one at that. 
 
The list of botanicals is just as it should be, twelve in all; juniper, coriander, angelica root, orange and lemon zest, cinnamon, ginger, orris, cardamon, fennel, clove, and nutmeg. That fennel is a pleasant surprise and accounts for the spice. It will certainly be a winner in your next cocktail with that spicy fennel acting as counterpoint to the freshness of the tonic and fruitiness of the Negroni
 
SmartAss Corner:
“Knickerbocker” was the nickname given to Dutch immigrants landing in New York because of the traditional baggy pants worn by the men.

London dry gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as spirits such as cognac, scotch or tequila. Only a tiny handful of London dry gins are actually made in the city.

Angela,
Citrusy, very smooth. Not heavy on the juniper

Zachary,
Sip worthy gin
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, London Dry style Gin, that has an aromatic & clean birth; while a bold & rich life leads to a long & dry death with notes of herbs & spices.
 
Luis
Luis,
Delightful gin with some fruity tones. Enjoyed straight, and with some tonic... but anything more would lose the uniqueness of her.
 
Teri
Teri,
This is a unique flavor - to me anyway. It’s a complex flavor but yet smooth. I really enjoyed

Bryan,
This gin is fantastic. I just bought my first bottle after sampling it. It has a unique taste and should be enjoyed neat or on the rocks. You don't need to mix this gin with anything. It's that good.
 
Steven
Steven,
I suppose this is more your classic gin expectation. Strong alpine start with smooth floral finish. Not as striking as finish of Hendricks but relatively similar.
 
Michael
Michael,
Great Gin! I tried this in the Ginaissance sampler and immediately bought a bottle. Goes great with Fever Tree tonic.
 
Floyd
Floyd,
This has become my favorite gin. It is smooth and complex, not too flowery; dry with a woodsy flavor. Great for martinis.

Samantha,
My favorite of the tasters in Ginaissance. A nice, smooth, complex gin that is great as a stand alone drink, but would be fantastic in a G&T s well.

Doug,
Delicious! Flowery and piney, perfect for a dry gin martini with a little more Briney garnish. Certain vermouths expose a tinge of spearmint.

Refreshing gin with floral undertones. My wife remarked that it tasted, “green”.

Heavy chemical citron and lemon, mild zest and cinnamon. Not a fan.
