Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Gin 1689, a three century-old recipe brought back to life! During the so-called Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689, William of Orange didn’t only chase away the British king, but he also introduced a typical Dutch item to the British island. Genever, soon abbreviated to Dutch gin. Gin soon became very popular among the British population.


Now, 350 years later, the Amsterdam Craft Gin Company relaunches the authentic recipe from that time. Founder Alexander Janssens studied the archives of the British Library to retrieve the original recipe. It took him almost two years to find it. With help from the master distiller Herman Jansen from Schiedam they developed and revived the century-old recipe that conquered the British island in 1689.
