Our Story

11th of April 1689

When the Dutch King William III - better known as William of Orange - came to the English throne he made Gin, which originated from Holland, popular with the British people. 

In 1689, shortly after the Dutch King William III - better known as William of Orange – was proclaimed King Of England, Ireland and Scotland, he made gin, a traditionally Dutch drink, popular with the British people. At this time, anyone could distil their own alcohol by simply posting a notice in public and waiting a mere ten days. Soon, of course, the volume sold daily exceeded that of beer and ale.


Gin Heritage

The history of Gin

Gin 1689 launched first Dutch Pink Gin!

After a sensational launch last year of Gin 1689 we successfully launch this summer the first Dutch Pink Gin called the "Queen Mary Edition". Named after the wife of William of Orange. 
This beautiful pink gin is based on the authentic Gin 1689 where strawberries & raspberries are added to the distillation process. This gives it the pink colour and in the 300 year old recipe it was already recommended to drink this gin with these 2 ingredients. So this pink gin is as close as it gets as being the first pink gin in the world.
Please drink this crafted pink gin a Indian Tonic and garnish with red fruit eg strawberry or raspberry.  

For Kings and Queens only
