About 1689 Dutch Pink Gin:
Based on the very same recipe as the Authentic Gin 1689, in historic times they would mix this spirit with bruised strawberries and raspberries, hence, creating the world’s first pink gin or cocktail.
Reduced in alcoholic strength to 38.5%, this first Dutch Pink Gin has a red fruity nose and blends well with the spiciness of the original gin. A 100% sugar-free pink gin, which is fantastic to drink during the summertime and amazing to use in cocktails.
Mediterranean-style tonic, lots of ice served with sliced strawberries and raspberries as garnish.
