Bobby?s Schiedam Dry Gin: a spicy and fruity gin
As you perhaps have already heard, gin was originally made in the Netherlands. There is a big question as to how the amazing juniper-based spirit was first created. According to some sources, it was Dr. Sylvius, a Dutch physician, who was the mastermind behind the drink. Other sources claim that gin was first used by nervous British soldiers to calm their nerves before battle during the Eighty Year War. The spirit?s use earned it the nickname ?Dutch Courage? because the soldiers were able to face battle without fear. Whatever the backstory, one thing is certain: gin has stood the test of time.
Bobby?s Gin is made in the Netherlands, meaning it is a product of the original gin country. Bobby?s Gin differs from other gins in that it has a special twist: it has an Indonesia character. You simply need to take one look at the bottle and you see that Bobby?s Gin is a mishmash of East and West. The bottle?s shape is inspired by the traditional gin bottle of yesteryear. The zigzag pattern, however, is borrowed from Indonesian design. Bobby?s Gin, in time-honoured tradition, is sealed with a wooden cork carrying the symbol of Herman Jansen Manufaktur, the manufacturer. Not only does this bottle catch your eye, but it also is a fine fusion between East and West.
Bobby?s Gin comes from Schiedam, a small region in the south of the country. Herman Jansen Manufaktur has been a family-run spirits business since 1777. Bobby?s Gin is among many fine spirits which the company manufactures. A diverse range of liqueurs and bitters, along with whisky and gin, are distilled by the company. Bobby?s Gin is something special because of its exotic botanicals, such as coriander, cloves, lemon grass, and cubeb pepper. These unusual ingredients are blended with juniper, orange peel, and rose hip to create a remarkable gin.
In the nose, Bobby?s Gin presents the unmistakable scent of juniper, with added notes of lemon grass and other exotic spices. On the palate, Bobby?s Gin is both refreshing and delicious. The cubeb pepper tickles your tongue, and the orange peel?s fruitiness shines through. The lemon grass is not as stronger upon tasting, giving the gin a fresh finish with a clear juniper character.
