Bols have been distilling since 1575, making it the world's oldest commercial distillery. Genever is basically the 'father' of gin, and is also the root of the phrase 'Dutch Courage'. Using an original 19th century recipe this genever has spent 18 months aging in Limousin (French) Oak. This gives it a whole new dimension in terms of flavour and aroma. The combination of base grains and 22 botanicals gives it the aroma of bready juniper and stone fruit. The palate has nutty flavours with warming woody spices and faint juniper. The finish is big and rich with tropical fruit oiliness. Best enjoyed as a Kopstootje, or boilermaker with your favourite beer!
