Holland America Line Introduces Exclusive ‘De Lijn’ Gin in Honor of 150th Anniversary
Gin has been an anchor in Holland America Line’s history dating back to the company’s inception, and to celebrate that 150-year tradition the cruise line is debuting a new exclusive label of the spirit on board.
Affectionately named De Lijn in a nod to Holland America Line’s roots, the bottle is adorned with a label boasting the name in Dutch orange, accented with line drawings of brilliant blue juniper berries in a style the cruise line has coined as Modern Delft, an homage to iconic blue and white of Dutch Delftware.
De Lijn Gin is made with a blend of Dutch inspired botanicals, including orange and rose, along with elderberry, lemon verbena, lemon, raspberry and juniper. Each botanical is cold distilled separately for distinct and consistent flavors. The result is a premium gin, made in America, inspired by the Netherlands, and specially crafted for Holland America Line.
