The Onder de Boompjes Distillery, where this expression is produced, began operations eight years later, making it the oldest independent distillery in the Netherlands. Their Sylvius Gin is made with a wheat spirit and 10 botanicals: juniper, angelica root, coriander seeds, lavender, whole lemons, orange zest, alba ceylon cinnamon, star anise, licorice root and caraway seeds.
