Black Tomato Gin
~ history ~
Black tomato Gin is born in the authentic harbor of Bruinisse, a small fisherman village with a long tradition in fishing mussels. The distillery is facing the clear waters of the Oosterschelde which is the biggest
National parc of the Netherlands.
When the sun gets up you can spot the seals playing around and catching fresh fish.
When lucky we can count the porpoises floating by.
With the tide coming the Oosterschelde gets filled with 8 billion litre of fresh salt water.
After dozens of testing and tasting sessions our master distiller Meindert Kampen came up with the best ever artisan distilled Black Tomato Gin.
Besides the secret botanicals we use some small drops of fresh salt Oosterschelde water and homegrown great tasting black tomatoes. Our distillery is one of the rare distillers in the Netherlands having its own traditional malt-floor, stone floor for sprouting of steeped malting-grains.
We are proud that we can make traditional organic malt-wine using the best ancient ingredients from our provincie.
Black tomatoes contain a high amount of healing anthocycanen. These compounds occur in vegetables and fruit. Some believe that the antioxidants could help diabetes, cancer and obese. We harvest our own biological crop so we grow the most honest and delicious black tomatoes possible.
