"Damrak Gin is an interesting gin that has become a favorite. The Lucas Bols recipe dates back to Amsterdam in the 1700's and is said to be the oldest known gin recipe. Despite it's antiquity it is not what we would think of as a Dutch gin, one such as a Genever, but is more of a cross between that and a London dry. It is a spectacular gin for a variety of drinks and is exceptionally smooth and robust, due to its 17 botanicals. This is a great Martini gin and its complexity is ideal for many of the classic, clean, gin cocktails." ~ Distillery notes
DAMRAK Gin is an exceptionally smooth gin with a less pronounced juniper flavor instead favouring more citrus flavours.
Based on his extensive experience and expertise our Master distiller has created this unique gin recipe. A combination of five distillations and bottled at 41.8% Alc/Vol. (83.6 proof), DAMRAK Gin has a sweet orange aroma giving way to candied pine. On the palate, the citrus leads followed by licorice, coriander, and a subtle juniper flavour. With a subdued juniper flavour coming to the fore, the 16 other botanicals such as orange, citrus, honeysuckle and an array of spicy and sweet herbs, combine to create an intricate mix that makes DAMRAK Gin the most pleasant gin to drink.
The signature botanical blend in DAMRAK Gin is perfect for citrus style cocktails like gin & juice, classic cocktails like the Martini, Negroni, or the Aviation, as well as for sipping neat over ice and naturally in the Gin & Tonic with an orange zest
