The history of Jachtbitter

Roelof Hendriks Gorter was born in the year 1768. Roelof lived with his wife Trijntje and five children in Dokkum, a small village located in the Dutch province of Friesland. Roelof was a real family man. In the 18th century, it was not always easy to find food. To put food on the table, Roelof went hunting every day. When his sons were old enough they joined their dad. Sometimes they came home empty handed and sometimes with ducks, hares and rabbits. Upon returning home from the hunt Roelof preserved the game by soaking it in his homemade gin. At first the gin was just for himself and his household, but before long family, friends and neighbours all came along to fill their gin jars.

Roelof concentrated on distilling liquor. The gin was soon followed by a herbal liquor. By using herbs from the neighbourhood and adding sugars, he devised a new recipe: his own herbal liquor: Jachtbitter. Roelof and his sons took ‘Jachtbitter’ with them while hunting, to keep themselves warm and ward off the chill. But after the hunt they also took a drink of Jachtbitter toasting to love and happiness. Family, friends and neighbours were curious and were surprised by the pure, slightly sweet herbal liquor. It was so very popular that in 1816 Roelof decided to sell his herb liquor from his new hometown Sneek. As from then on Jachtbitter was not only for himself, but for everyone who loves it.
