Henkes’s Dry Gin – Mid 1960’s

Rating: 7 out of 10

Clear as water, literally. Jonge jenever. Citrus, Orangepeel. Clearly a Dutch-style gin. Quite spirity and ‘light’, but well made. Mouth: spicy, more herbal then expected, with obvious lemon and some fennel. Also quite bitter. Finish: short and dry. It misses a lot of the herbal notes you usually get with UK-style Gin.
