Gin 1689 Bottling Note

This replica gin was based on the original 1689 recipe of the spirit made by the Dutch King William III (AKA William of Orange) after he was proclaimed King of England, Ireland and Scotland that very year.

The recipe, which was amazingly uncovered in the British Library's rare book section, lists the original ingredients but unfortunately, the quantities were concealed by code, which proved unbreakable.

The task of deciding new quantities was given to Herman Jansen in Schiedam, Netherlands, a distillery that dates back to 1777.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Pine-y juniper, a little anise and flickers of rich spice blend among plenty of ripe citrus notes.
