This gin was created in 2015 to honour the 10th anniversary of De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig (which translates roughly as “the youth of today”), a famous Dutch Hip-Hop group.
This is a small batch, limited edition version of the distillery’s classic Dutch Dry Gin, which is made using juniper berries, angelica root, coriander, lemon, cardamom, laurel, orange, liquorice, and ginger, alongside the interesting addition of St. John’s Wort.
The gin has a classic Dry profile, with bracing citrus and spice flavours, and a little fruity sweetness. This small batch version (with batch number handwritten on the label) offers some unique variations on the original, unlikely to be experienced again.
Makes a fantastically bracing Martini, perfect for pre-dinner drinking.
