Gin 1689 Pink 70cl
The first Dutch pink gin, beatifully flavoured with strawberries and raspberries
Gin 1689 Pink
The very first ever Dutch Pink Gin is named after the wife of King William III (William of Orange), Queen Mary.
This beautiful pink gin is based on the authentic Gin 1689 recipe where strawberries and raspberries are added to the distillation process, giving it a traditional pink colour and a delicious fruity flavour.
In the original 1689 recipe it was recommended to drink this gin with these two ingredients, bruised in a glass. Hence, this pink gin is as close as it gets to being the first ever pink gin in the world.
We have two perfect serves for this gin:
For a more classic gin tonic, we recommend serving with a neutral tonic. Double Dutch Skinny Tonic, or Double Dutch Indian Tonic both work really well. In a large glass filled with ice, add 50ml gin and 150ml of tonic. Stir gently, and then garnish with strawberries and raspberries.
For a less bitter mixer, we recommend with The London Essence Co. White Peach & Jasmine Soda Water. This doesn't have the quinine found in a tonic, and lends a gently floral and fruity note to the gin. In a large glass, add 50ml gin and 150ml of the soda. Stir gently, and again, garnish with strawberries and raspberries.
