VL92

Netherlands Founded in 2012
VL92 Gin was born of the quest of Dutch entrepreneurs Leo Fontijne & Sietze Kalkwijk, to find their ultimate Gin. Built upon a malt Wine foundation, VL92 Gin has its roots in the Dutch genever tradition.

The malt Wine gives it its boldness; its complexity is derived from the interplay between botanical elements that finish with the eccentric, citrusy endnote of a most surprising ingredient: coriander leaf. This Gin is produced using malt Wine and botanicals like citrus and coriander.

VL92 Gin has a unique packaging design, created by design agency Rare Fruits Council, and is named after a historic sailing freighter that resided in the Dutch town of Vlaardingen, where the Spirit is made. A Gin for Gin Tonic lovers who appreciate herbal complexity and uniqueness.
