Origins of gin
The origins of gin can be charted back to the Netherlands in the 13th Century. Back in those days, gin was far from its modern incarnation. Known as genever, the drink was made by distilling malt wine to around 50% ABV (alcohol by volume), the drink wasn’t particularly drinkable, so it was softened with herbs and spices. Juniper berries were added to the drink for their supposed medicinal properties. Depending on how it was distilled, the resulting alcohol tasted similar to vodka or whiskey.

The Netherlands

The Netherlands
This authentic 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.
Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin is named after our grandfather, Jacobus Alfons, known to his friends and family as Bob or Bobby. It was his recipe that inspired us. It took us almost two years to make Bobby’s, a very fine and balanced distilled gin. Eight botanicals all separately distilled. No additives, sugars or extractions. Simply pure taste. A fresh take on a timeless classic.

Germany

The legendary sailor Knut Hansen is the face of our gin – an honest guy, who was not held up by anyone or anything, who took the freedom to see the places he always wanted to visit and who experienced countless adventures on his journey. To us producing a regional gin means using regional botanicals. Next to the obligatory juniper, we process apples from the farmers around Hamburg, and cucumber as well as basil come from our own cultivation.

The United Kingdom

Walks with Darcy (the distillery dog) through the meadows surrounding their distillery inspired William and Lucy Lowe to capture the taste of the English seasons. Using botanicals grown in and around their own home they created a recipe including juniper, fresh basil, rosemary, angelica, lemon verbena, blackcurrant leaf and rose petals, each individually distilled and expertly blended into this outstanding gin.
The world’s first digestif gin, created when our founders William and Lucy were presented with an after-dinner drinks list which didn’t include any white spirits. This luxurious spirit is led by white truffle from Alba, Piedmont – an ingredient which is worth more than gold per gram.
Cambridge Distillery’s Anty Gin is the result of a collaboration with the visionary thinkers of the Nordic Food Lab, and is the very first gin in the world to be made from insects. Each bottle of Anty Gin contains the essence of approximately 62 red wood ants, along with hand-foraged botanicals including juniper, wild wood avens and nettle that complement the sharp citrus notes created by distilling the ants.
The world’s first gin to focus solely on Japanese botanicals; our Master Distiller became enamoured with these exciting and unusual flavours, which were only accessible because of Cambridge Distillery’s low-temperature distillation processes.Japanese Gin is made using six botanicals: juniper, shiso leaf, sesame seeds, cucumber, sansho and yuzu: each distilled individually in a vacuum, then blended together for exceptional purity of flavour.
Crystal clear in appearance, Watenshi is a dry, medium-bodied gin that balances undeniable intensity with fresh softness. Menthol notes of shiso partnered with yuzu citrus deliver lively acidity and energy, while a base of sansho and juniper provide a rich, long finish to savour. Truly, objectively, outstanding. Watenshi is best enjoyed either neat, or over ice.

If you’re familiar with Old Tom Gins then you’ll know how delightful they are. The style was commonplace in 18th Century England when distillation techniques were crude and harsh spirits were the norm. To make the gin more palatable they were flavoured quite richly and sweetened, though not as sweet as Genever, generally regarded as the forerunner to gin, which came across from Holland in the 16th Century.

The spirit has a unique royal origin, with many of its citrus and herbal notes sourced from botanicals gathered in the Buckingham Palace Gardens. Lemon verbena, hawthorn berries and mulberry leaves are among the 12 botanicals hand-picked for the gin in the Gardens at Buckingham Palace, which span 16 hectares and provide a habitat for 30 species of bird and over 250 species of wild flower.

All our gins have been handcrafted on Södermalm in Stockholm. Our Dry gin is a Nordic take on a traditional dry gin that has got its characteristics from 7 organic botanicals – juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, lemon peel, heather, elderflower and rosemary. Our blend gives the gin a delicate flowery taste parallel to the classic juniper and citrus notes. This makes it perfect for the classic gin cocktails, but also ideal to purely enjoy neat or in a Dry Martini.

India

In 2015, the world was going through a “Gin-aissance” and yet, two bar owners in Delhi who waited for the tsunami of Gin brands were left high and dry. The country where Gin & Tonic was invented and where exotic gin botanicals are found in most home kitchens was still in the dark ages of Gin. If they wanted Gin, they were going to have to make it themselves. They stepped out from behind the bar, got themselves a copper pot still and experimented with every spice, herb and fruit they could find. 

Whether you like it on the rocks, with a twist of lemon, garnished with an olive or all/none of the above, the Martini belongs to a select group of undisputed classics.
