The Schiedam Statement

The Schiedam Statement

Classic with an Asian Twist

We ask Thijn Koning, Lead bartender at Rooftop restaurant 16th in Schiedam, The Netherlands, to make us a cocktail with Gin 1689 and Bandoeng’22. Recently Thijn presented us his creation, a delicious cocktail which he named ‘The Schiedam Statement’.

The Last Word
The Schiedam Statement cocktail is a variation on the classic drink called ‘The Last Word’. Which is a gin-based cocktail originated at the Detroit Athletic Club in the 1910s, shortly before the start of Prohibition. After a long period of obscurity, it enjoyed renewed popularity in the early 2000s when it was introduced in Seattle. This cocktail is traditionally made with equal parts gin, Green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and lime juice.

About Thijn Koning
Thijn studied at the European Bartender School in Madrid and is the leading bartender at Rooftop restaurant 16th in Van der Valk Hotel Schiedam, The Netherlands. Where he likes to create food pairing cocktails. For more information about Rooftop 16th visit their website here.

Methode of preparation
Like the Last Word Thijn uses equal parts of gin, Bandoeng’22, jenever and lime juice. He shakes all ingredients, with a view drop of Foamee and strains into a glass. The glass was first sprayed with some absinth. He garnishes with a lime peel. This results in a beautiful, well-balanced drink you can enjoy as a aperitive or during some oriental bites.

Gin 1689: 30 ml
Bandoeng’22: 20 ml
Sau Jenever: 20 ml
Lime juice: 20 ml
Simple syrup: 10 ml
Foamee: 2 ml
Absinth rinse

For the finishing touch add a lime rose as garnish
