Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin is named after my grandfather, Jacobus Alfons, known to his friends and family as Bob or Bobby. It was his recipe that inspired us. It took us almost two years to make Bobby’s, a very fine and balanced distilled gin. Eight botanicals all separately distilled. No additives, sugars or extractions. Simply pure taste. A fresh take on a timeless classic.More
BOBBY'S JOURNEY – EAST MEETS WEST –
Schiedam, the Netherlands. It is here, in the jenever capitol of the world, that Herman Jansen distills his first malt wine gin at Distillery ‘De Tweelingh’. This unique spirit, lovingly known as ‘Dutch Courage’, is shipped to the United Kingdom where over time it evolves to what we now know as London Dry Gin.
Jacobus Alfons, or Bobby to his family and friends,born in Naku, Ambon (Indonesia), migrated to the Netherlands. Bobby loved Dutch Jenever, but missed the taste of home, so he started infusing his jenever with familiar Indonesian spices and herbs. Unknowingly creating his own gin. And laying the foundation for Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin.
Bobby’s grandson Sebastiaan discovered an old bottle at his mother’s house. Inspired by the story about his grandfather and his unique Indonesian recipe, he went to Schiedam, the city where gin originated. There he met the seventh generation master distiller of Herman Jansen. Together they started working on creating a unique gin, blending the tradition of Schiedam jenever with the best Indonesian botanicals and spices.
After almost two years of distilling, developing and refining, Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin is born.
