Interesting Info about Glorious Gin:
Breuckelen is the old Dutch name for Brooklyn. In 1636, approx. twelve years after the first Dutch settlers began to establish the community of New Amsterdam at the southern end of Manhattan Island, some pioneers spread across the East River to set up plantations on the western-most edge of Long Island. Ten years later, the first Dutch community on the island was incorporated. It was called Breuckelen, after a town in the Netherlands. Nevertheless the village of Breuckelen is not synonymous with what we know as Brooklyn today. It was much smaller and one of in total six areas. The others were Amersfoort, New Utrecht, Boswyck, Midwout and Gravesend. Later, these areas were united and got the name "Brooklyn". Thus, the chaotic street pattern of Brooklyn is a direct result of the area having started life as six separate Dutch towns.
