Gin 1689

Sir Edmond Gin

Gin 1689, Other gins have a story. We have a legend. In 1689, William of Orange travelled to London from the Netherlands, bringing a Dutch drink
– gin – with him. Safe to say, it caught on. In 2016, we made the same journey: two friends from Amsterdam, inspired to make the same gin, with the original 1689 recipe; a hit all over again. We discovered one of the very earliest gin recipes in the archives of the British Library and have brought it back to life as Gin 1689. Our ‘’London Dry’’ and pink ‘’’Queen Mary Edition’’ are a taste of the true originals. And they’re well worth the 300-year wait. Try it and be part of our kind of history. Taste the legacy. This is Gin 1689.

Inspired by Michelin star chefs who use Bourbon vanilla in their kitchen to create culinary magic, the makers of Sir Edmond Gin gave this fantastic ingredient the main stage in their gin. Sir Edmond Gin originated from a simple idea: to create a gin that stands out and is truly different. Unique, versatile and full of character. This great gin has been awarded several times with various medals and can be found in the high-end restaurants and cocktail bars. Sir Edmond is a gin from the Netherlands, which is made by Herman Jansen in Schiedam, which is established since 1777, having almost 250 years of spirit making knowledge. Sir Edmond Gin is a balanced gin with a refined taste. The selection of the natural botanicals has resulted in a beautiful gin. Made with juniper berries, angelica root, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. The first thing that hits you is the vanilla accompanied by cinnamon, a sublime combination. Its finish is nice and dry. Unique, tasty and versatile: pure with ice, in a gin & tonic and in cocktails.

1689 Dutch Dry Gin

Gin 1689, a three-century-old recipe brought back to life! During the so- called Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689, King William of Orange introduced a typical Dutch product to the British Isles. Genever, soon abbreviated to Dutch Gin. Gin soon became very popular amongst the British population. Now, 3 centuries later, the Amsterdam Craft Gin
Company relaunches an authentic recipe that conquered the British Isles in 1689. The result is Gin 1689, a tribute to the Dutch craftsmanship of over three centuries ago. A beautiful combination of a strong juniper led profile with dried quince and pippin, lemon and orange peel, and warm spices of nutmeg, aniseed, and cloves. A sophisticated and intensely smooth gin, easy drank neat, in combination with your favourite Indoan tonic or in a sensational cocktail!

1689 Dutch Pink Gin

An amazingly delicious (non-sweet but dry and fruity) pink gin. It’s based on the very same authentic Gin 1689 recipe where strawberries and raspberries are added to the distillation process, giving the spirit a pink hue as well as fruity flavour. A Recipe that symbolizes the love between the two monarchs and the shared Anglo-Dutch royal heritage. The recipe is even printed on the back of the bottle! The three-century-old recipe recommends to drink the gin garnished with strawberries and raspberries, and who are we to argue with history.
