Flying Dutchman

News • 04.08.16

Earlier this year, working in collaboration with Lucas Bols of Amsterdam, we created an exclusive and bespoke cocktail for KLM Royal Dutch Airline, called The Flying Dutchman. The signature cocktail is available complimentary across all global business class flights. The unique recipe perfectly blends Damrak Gin with Bols Blackberry, Gomme and Lemon Juice and is served over ice with a lemon garnish.

In May 2016, KLM celebrated the 70th anniversary of its Intercontinental consumer flight from Amsterdam to New York, the first of any airline between Europe and the US following World War Two. Tails founder Nick Wall travelled as part of a select party, which included KLM President and CEO Pieter Elbers, on a celebratory flight between Schipol and JFK Airports where The Flying Dutchman was offered to all passengers complimentary.
