Dutch courage my friends.
Zuidam Distillery was founded in 1975 in the Netherlands by Fred van Zuidam. The beginnings were humble indeed. It took them over 10 years before the business started taking off – that is after his wife Helene started designing the packaging for the products. These days the distillery is run by their two sons Patrick and Gilbert, however father Fred is still involved in all recipes and mother Helene still makes the design. They use local windmills for the production of malted barley, helping preserve an important Dutch heritage of their World-famous windmills.
Zuidam Dutch Courage Dry Gin is Zuidam's take on Dutch Courage. Thi is a small-batch Dry Gin produced by using Windmills to grind the barley into flour, which acts as its base. This method is used as it prevents an increase in temperature from the barley, thereby keeping the very flavours and smell that comes with it, apparent in the malty tones of the Gin.
