    Bobby's Schiedam Dry Gin is an interpretation of creator Sebastiaan's grandfather, Bobby's homemade gin. Born in Indonesia, Bobby immigrated to the Netherlands in the 1950's, but longed for a spirit with the taste of home. So, he began infusing Dutch jenever with Indonesian herbs, thus creating his own gin. In 2012, Sebastiaan traveled to Holland to meet master distiller of Herman Jansen. Together, they created today's version of Bobby's recipe using Indonesian botanicals such as lemongrass, cloves, coriander, cubeb pepper and cinnamon.

    Dingle Original Gin is technically a London Dry gin, but its botanicals lean towards a modern style by using rowan berry, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorne, and heather among others. It is made in the distillery's copper pot stills and brought to proof with water from their own well 240 feet below the distillery. Dingle is a town located on the rugged Dingle Peninsula on the west coast of Ireland. The distillery makes whiskey and vodka in addition to the gin. As of late 2018, these three products are available in the US.
