Let’s start with some history. In a nutshell, of course.
Picture the Golden Age (hint – 17th century)… The Damrak harbour (Amsterdam’s “inner harbour”) is the mooring place for merchant ships of the Dutch East India company arriving from and departing to exotic ports across the globe. Here herbs, fruits and spices are unloaded before being weighed and tested for quality.
Several of those spices historically traded in Damrak harbour are used in our recipe today. Oh, did we mention that our little distillery in the heart of Amsterdam is steps away from the historical Damrak? With our roots going deep in Dutch history, we are proud to be the Amsterdammer among the London boys. Because that’s where it all started.
So, who are we?
Damrak is an authentic Amsterdam gin brand. With fresh citrus notes, we are everything but a standard London dry gin. We are a real Amsterdammer: proud yet accessible, clever yet genuine, edgy yet deep-down smooth and charming. DAM tasty in a gin & tonic, served with a slice of orange or two. We are ‘the best DAM gin’ and we are here to spread Amsterdam pride all over the world.
Now also for the mindful ones
Not only do we bring you an amazing citrus-forward authentic gin. We now also offer a non-alcoholic spirit for those who prefer to take it down a notch. Damrak Virgin is here for everyone who likes to enjoy a cocktail, but not the buzz.
