Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin

Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin is a family brand and the gin was named after their grandfather, Jacobus Alfons, known to his friends and family as Bob or Bobby. Jackie bus had emigrated to Holland. The gin is a Dutch-Indonesian combination that celebrates the 150 year shared history of the two countries. The design on the bottle is an Ikat pattern, which is an Indonesian traditional design.

Within the Gin, the eight botanicals are all separately distilled. No additives, sugars or extractions. Simply pure taste. A fresh take on a timeless classic.

It tastes lovely. It’s the type of gin that suits plain tonics because it’s got enough flavor in it. I’ve been happily knocking this back.

I was kindly gifted this for my review from @bobbysdrygin and @piracycorp ♥️
