Damrak Amsterdam Gin
Bols and his company, the oldest continuing distillery in the world, has honed
the art of gin making and in celebration of more than four centuries of gin
making, we proudly offer the world DAMRAK Amsterdam Gin. The Master Distiller,
beginning with exotic fruits, berries and spices in their natural state – (never
from extract), created DAMRAK Amsterdam Gin from a recipe that dates back to the
1700’s. While most people were still under the impression that the world was
flat, the Dutch were busy sailing to and from faraway lands in search of exotic
cargo. From the early 1600’s through most of the 1800’s, the Dutch East India
Company held a monopoly on the spice trade from Indonesia, Ceylon and the Spice
Islands. Ships would return to the DAMRAK (Amsterdam’s “inner harbour”). The
DAMRAK became an important mooring place for merchant ships arriving from and
departing to exotic ports of call around the world. Established as a center of
world trade, the city of Amsterdam flourished and expanded.
Damrak Amsterdam Gin
With its trace of malt – attributing to its extraordinary smooth finish, DAMRAK
Amsterdam Gin combines no less than 17 botanicals and is distilled five times
for unparalleled clarity in a refreshing 83.6 proof spirit that is pure Dutch.
A nose of cinnamon, sweet spice, lots of spice, herbal juniper, lime soufflé,
lime, and mint. Stirringly smooth yet crisp and fresh, Damrak is the ideal cocktail ingredient for classic cocktails and makes a great drink by itself on the rocks.
An exceptionally smooth gin with
a less pronounced juniper flavor instead favoring more citrus flavors.
Handsomely packaged in a bottle shape reminiscent of the original. Bols
stoneware crock and featuring a unique stopper, DAMRAK Amsterdam Gin is a true
Dutch Masterpiece suitable for sharing with friends or placing on display.
It, Now! | More Info!
In the early 16th century, Gin (derived from the Dutch word for juniper “genever”)
was invented as a remedy for a variety of ailments. Lucas Bols, with his ability
for ‘free thinking’ saw beyond its curative powers and, according to the legend,
began distilling jenever in 1575. Lucas Bols established a simple distillery in
the country outside Amsterdam. He used the spices and herbs brought back by the
Dutch East India Company to blend and distill his product. In return, the
soldiers and sailors of the Dutch East India Company became loyal Bols customers
and carried his Jenever around the world.
1838 spirit retailers were still required licences and, to compete with the beer shops, they devised the 'gin palaces' which first appeared about 1830. These were designed to be an escape from home. As home for the poor - who continued to be gin's main supporters - was often a sordid slum, the gin palace was large, imposing and handsome and even luxuriously furnished. By the 1850s there were about 5,000 such places in London and Charles Dickens describes them in his 'Sketches by Boz' in the mid-1830s as "perfectly dazzling when contrasted with the darkness and dirt
they have just left."
