A modern Gin crafted from a three hundred year-old ingredient list written by a king.

Amsterdam Craft Gin Company was founded by Alexander Janssens and Patrick van der Peet. As Dutch natives transplanted to London, they felt a kinship with Dutch King William III — known as William of Orange — who moved from Holland to England to assume the English throne and shortly thereafter began distilling a Spirit from his homeland — Gin. They researched old records to find Willaim’s original recipe and have recreated it at Herman Jansen Distillers in Schiedam, launching Gin 1689 in the UK last year. They are growing quickly and have recently taken on investors to facilitate stretching the brand internationally.

After deciphering an ingredient list from the 1600s, Alexander and Patrick passed the task of crafting them into a balanced Gin Spirit to Herman Jansen. That list of botanicals included juniper, dried quince, pippin apple, lemon and orange zest, nutmeg, anise, and clove. Gin 1689 Authentic Dutch Dry Gin is a thoroughly modern Gin made from a king’s old shopping list, and that’s pretty cool.

Smartass Corner:
The "1689" in the name refers to the year that William of Orange invaded Southwest England and deposed James I — assuming the throne and bringing Gin to England for the first time.
