The Herbalist Gin Cocktail

“I was immediately impressed by The Herbalist gin, not least because it is a gin that contains a huge variety of herbs, many of which we also grow in our own garden. It is also unusual, remarkable even, that this gin is made naturally! Its fine and delicate character perfectly matches our Hertog Jan philosophy, in which we strive for both purity and clarity.” — Joachim Boudens, HERTOG JAN
