“Boomsma Dry Gin originates from many years of experience with herbs and genever, as well as the expansion of the Boomsma family company with an advanced copper pot still. The entire distillation process remains in our own hands.” Unlike most distilleries, Boomsma is still an independent family company. Saskia and Chantoine Boomsma are the fifth generation of Boomsma to run the company and they have big plans for the distillery. Saskia Boomsma: “With the modesty that comes with a traditional family company, we want to expand and develop the distillery. That’s why we introduced Boomsma Dry Gin.” The square bottle of the gin, with its quirky logo, is a nod to the 1920s and symbolises the rich history of the company, yet it still fits in with the interior of the hippest bars around the Netherlands.
