Rotterdam gin king David van Linschoten, fourth generation family-owned butcher shop van Linschoten, founded his own gin brand Van Linschoten Slagers Gin a few years ago. Only 250 unique limited edition gin boxes will be produced especially for MASTERS EXPO, which will be painted live at the exclusive business fair. Want to be assured of your box? On sale now in the MASTERS EXPO shop.
A work of art from gin
Especially for MASTERS EXPO, David van Linschoten and his associates are developing a Van Linschoten Slagers Gin limited edition box. From December 8 to 12, a wall of 250 boxes will be constructed at the exclusive business fair in the Amsterdam RAI, which will be painted as one big work of art by AAAFresh123. Each limited edition gin box is a unique piece of a great work of art, with of course a beautiful content. When purchasing a gin box, the buyer will also receive a signed and numbered copy, printed on linen paper, of the painting that AAAfresh123 painted on Oct. 1, 2018. This is in honor of the butcher shop's 110th anniversary, where butcher's gin was launched on the same evening.
Fourth generation family business
Jan Huygen in the barrel. Who does not know the children's song? The lyrics are about the Enkhuizer seafarer Jan Huygen van Linschoten (1563-1611). Exactly, family of... On October 1, 1908, the Van Linschoten butcher's shop was established, which is now a household name in 010 and far beyond. Exactly 110 years later, on October 1, 2018, the fourth generation of the family business, David van Linschoten, adds Van Linschoten Slagers Gin to the empire.
When the butcher shop celebrated its 110th anniversary in 2018, the family had a gin distilled from their own steak seasoning at Distillery Onder de Boompjes called Van Linschoten Slagers Gin. Together with his brother Hubert van Linschoten and a mutual friend, the Rotterdam-based kingdom of gin has since become a great success. To crown this, the brand produces the limited edition gin boxes, of which only 250 copies are available. Already available to order in the MASTERS EXPO shop*. Be sure to get there in time, because this opportunity is not coming back.
