It is perhaps worth mentioning here that Sylvius de Bouve is often confused with a German doctor, Franciscus Sylvius, born Franz de le Boë (1614-1672), also known as Dr Sylvius, who was professor of medicine at the University of Leyden some ninety years later (1658-1672). Perhaps this Scottish gin is crediting the wrong Dr Sylvius?
Originally made at Scotland’s Deanston Distillery the brand owners (VC2 Brands) have not disclosed where their gin is now made other than confirming they have moved production from Deanston. Due to the disclosed use of a Carterhead still we presume Boë is now made by G&J Distillers.
