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
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?
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!
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!
Driftwood Distillery is based on the Vliegkamp (airbase) at Valkenburg on the Dutch coast, 30 minutes from Amsterdam and Schiphol and 10 minutes from the beautiful towns of Katwijk, Leiden, and Noordwijk.
