Product of: Netherlands
Damrak Gin is made in a copper pot still close to Damrak Square with 17 botanicals. It is a gin, not a jenever, but is packaged in a glass bottle modelled on Bols' traditional jenever stoneware crock bottles with a china swing-top stopper.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/06/2014
Orange sherbet, spicy orange zest, dried fruit and light piney juniper.
Orange zest dominates with underlying piney juniper, angelica root, dry black pepper and cinnamon spice.
Orange and spice continues through the finish. Arguably an orange-flavoured gin rather than a classic gin according to the 'juniper dominates' definition. Zesty orange may challenge juniper for dominance but it does so in a classically gin way.
