Encountered in the production of gins ever since the sixteenth century, the caraway seed has digestive qualities which lend themselves to any number of drinks. Lucas Bols is beleived to have produced the first Kummel in the 1570's, around the time he began making gin. Made using cumin, a relative of the caraway seed, and the fiery qualities this spice brings to cooking gives an extra edge. Having originated in the region, kummel production has stuck stubbornly to north-western Europe and through the Baltic States and to Scandinavia.
