Schouten Distillery

Born at the kitchen table. Out of love for stories and the passion to share them.

Taste true craftsmanship, every bottle tells a story...

CLARITY

Gin No.1 is a London Dry Gin. Our first handmade Gin, distilled in small batches and bottled from our traditional distillery.

“Clarity refers to the moment when our image for Schouten Distillery became clear. The image that originated at the kitchen table with friends. Where we shared our stories with great enthusiasm and lots of love.

A story is an experience full of emotions and memories that remain forever, even far after the bottle is empty.

“Clarity” is characterized by a nice balance of taste and aroma. At the front a floral touch with the distinctive taste of the juniper, after which it turns to an earthy spiciness and a sweet twist that slowly takes you to a dry and spicy finish.

YUGEN

Gin No. 2 is a beautiful Barrel Aged Gin that is aged on several small American oak barrels. With every batch, 250 bottles are filled and labeled by hand, in our own traditional distillery.

“Yugen” stands for the awareness that we are all part of this universe and the connection that we have with each other. It discribes the deeper state of mind that we knowingly and unknowingly influence one another to do better in life.

The “Yugen” rests relatively short on American oak barrels. This phase however, is crucial for the Barrel Aged Gin. The oak barrels give away that unique smoky flavour and transforms the clear Gin into a golden treasure. The result is a Gin that preserves the strength and complexity of the original spirit but surprises with the soft hint of vanilla and the exotic taste of coconut, with every sip you take. The soft taste of the “Yugen” makes it enjoyable to drink both pure and on the rock.

KHOISAN

Gin No.3 is a New Western Style Gin. Striking by its deep blue colour with the fragrance and taste of the native herb Buchu, that grows in the mountains of the Western Cape in South Africa.

When the Dutch colonists set foot on the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa in 1652, the first people they encountered were the Khoisan. These by origin hunter-gatherers introduced the holy herb buchu to the new settlers. The aromatic, calming and stimulating effect of this herb was essential for medicinal practice and therefore the buchu is of great importance in the Khoisan history.

Without a doubt, the “Khoisan” can be called a full and rich Gin. The taste buds get spunked by the punchy spices and floral freshness with a bitterness in the aftertaste. The juniper is subtly present, as is the warm accent of oranges which blends beautifully with the buchu that marks the ‘signature’ taste of the ‘Khoisan’. The addition of caraway seed and pepper make this Gin significantly different from any other Gin you’ve ever tasted so far. Be amazed by the visual surprise when you mix the Khosian with tonic.
