Proof66 Notes

Damrak gin describes itself as a "exceptionally smooth" and designed with a less pronounced juniper profile than traditional dry gins. (For this reason, we have opted to list it as a "modern" style gin.) The gin is produced at Lucasl Bols and said to be a reenactment/resurrection of a centuries-old recipe found in the distillery. The name "Damrak" is a translation of "inner harbour" and an acknowledgment of the enlightenment-era booming international trade business in Amsterdam, a volume of which was in spices that are used in gin.

A very nice gin at a great price! I got a bottle for about $16. It is a middle-of-the-road gin in terms of dryness, perhaps a little more on the dry than wet side. Plenty of complexity. I would not put it on my absolute top list, but I think this has got to be about the best for the price I have found.

Damrak is great. I tried a 50ml of this last year and it stuck with me. This is just a good, high quality gin that starts to get into the upper echelons of the gin price range. The bottle is a great neo-classic design that really has some presence with the cap mechanism. I recommend this gin to anyone.
