Bols Genever Barrel-Aged
Bols // Netherlands
Launched in September 2011, this genever was created by Bols' Master Distiller Piet Van Leijenhorst. This genever is made from over 50% malt wine (in this case: long fermented rye, corn, and wheat) and includes botanicals including hops, cloves, anise, licorice, ginger, and others in addition to juniper. It is aged for at least 18 months in French Limousin oak barrels and sold in one-liter sized clay bottles. Bottled at 42% ABV.
