In the 17th century the Damrak harbor became an important mooring place for merchant ships arriving from and departing to exotic ports across the globe. The Damrak was the main artery through which products and spices were taken to the heart of Amsterdam; including sweet oranges and juniper berries. With this heritage in mind, Lucas Bols developed a high quality gin in addition to the current range of liqueurs and genevers. With a subdued juniper flavour, sixteen other botanicals such as orange, citrus, honeysuckle and an array of spicy and sweet herbs, combine to create the final flavour profile. Clear. Aromas and flavors of sesame seed bread crust, orange dreamsicle, and faint dried herbs with a soft, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a creamy, dried pinecone, mineral nuanced finish. More of an orange flavored genever and somewhat lacking in juniper character, but quite tasty.
