All you need to do is buy a bottle of Gin 1689 or Gin 1689 The Queen Mary Edition from the Craft Gin Club online shop for a chance to win this spectacular prize - it could not be easier or more delicious. Enter fast though, there are only 200 places available in the prize draw and it’s first come, first serve. Don’t miss your chance to win!

Craft Gin Club members will remember the gorgeous royal blue and gold of Gin 1689 from their October 2019 Gin of the Month box - that beautiful bottle, and the mouthwatering liquid inside, are not easily forgotten. It’s a truly remarkable gin, steeped in history!

How to enjoy Gin 1689
Check out Clubber shestx_Sherry (Instagram) enjoying the Perfect Gin 1689 G&T and our bespoke October 2019 Cocktail of the Month! Just one of the many gin fans who adored discovering Gin 1689 in their October box.

For those who don’t know, one of the earliest forms of gin, jenever, was invented in Holland, the home of Gin 1689’s founder, Alexander Janssens, and was introduced to the UK when the Dutch king, William of Orange, began to rule England in 1689.

Alexander drew on that rich history to develop his gin, reviving a centuries-old recipe he discovered for one of the first “modern” gins in the archives of the Distillers Guild in London.

The result is a craft gin brimming with a divine mix of spice and warm citrus tones that no gin fan will want to miss.

The pink Queen Mary Edition gin then takes things a step further with the addition of strawberries and raspberries. Yum!
