RUTTE CELERY GIN – 70cl
The Rutte Family began distilling genever in the late 18th century and although the family isn’t involved anymore (it’s part of the DeKupyer family of brands now), their name and tradition live on. In particular, Rutte Celery Dry Gin highlights a novel, but familiar ingredient. Humble celery is one of the signature ingredients behind one of their famous genevers, and this recipe for a gin including celery is purported to be a 19th-century recipe from the distillery’s founders.
Marketed as “celery gin,” it seems to be looking to capitalize on the trend towards calling contemporary gins “flavored gins” and listing the signature botanical right on the bottle.
