Driftwood Distillery likes lots of character and so makes gins that are big, bold and make a statement.
Our vision is to make a high quality gin that can stand on its own and tells interesting stories that invite you to ask a question and have a conversation about the world that we live in today.
Our small artisan Distillery is based on Vliegkamp Valkenburg, near Katwijk and does pretty much everything in house ourselves. From botanical, to still, to bottle and labelling, its is only when you know every facet and detail about how something is made can you adapt and improve upon it. Our craft distillery is designed for that; experimenting and improving
GINS WITH CHARACTER
Our gins are strong, packed full of flavour and character. They are the superheroes of gin, here to ask you a question!
“THE NEEDS OF MANY OUTWEIGH THE NEEDS OF THE FEW!”
JVS Gin is the brave, sometimes foolhardy patriot. Based on Jan van Speyk, the dutch naval hero, in the Dutch war of independence, his story still rings true today. Would you stand up for your country, your community, your way of life?
“SHEEP, SHEEPDOG or WOLF… Which one are you?
Donkey Jack Gin is the sheepdog warrior; he will stand up and protect even if the needy are not of his own kind. He believes in doing what is right, even if it might cross a line occasionally!
“FREEDOM TO CHOOSE! Who does that these days”
Rose Finch Gin believes in freedom; freedom of choice, movement and freedom from material or social constraints. She drifts, goes with the flow and is not held back by borders, baggage or bullshit!
