4 Interesting Facts About Black Tomato Gin


Hailing from the Netherlands, Black Tomato gin is something rather different. From the short matt black bottle to it’s salty-sweet, almost vegetal taste, this gin really has the power to split opinion.

Here are a couple of facts about the world’s first gin made from tomatoes:

  1. Black Tomato gin is distilled in the authentic harbour of Bruinisse at the Kampen Distillery.  The distillery faces the clear waters of the Oosterschelde which the biggest National park in the Netherlands. When the tide comes in, the Oosterschelde is filled with 8 billion litres of fresh salt water and it’s this salt water that gives the gin its salty flavour.
  2. Homegrown black tomatoes are used to produce the gin, along with a number of other secret botanicals.
  3. Black Tomato Gin contains a very high concentration of healing anthocyanin. These compounds occur in vegetables and fruit and are believed to help with diabetes, cancer and obesity – all excellent reasons to drink this gin!
  4. This gin is also 100% vegetarian and organic. Kampen Distillery takes great pride in doing as much as possible in-house, even going so far as to malt their own grain prior to distillation.
