Part of the Barrel-Aged Genever range from Filliers Distillery, this is actually the only expression that didn't age in oak casks. Instead it qualifies as a Jonge Genever, meaning it has a maltwine content of less than 15 percent. Juniper berries are used as a botanical, to give this genever its signature character.

Tasting Notes

"A very fresh and vibrant nose with lots juniper, this could be misstaken for a classic dry gin. There's some notes of coriander and orange peel as well. The palate shows a more distinct graininess, and has a nice viscosity. However, the juniper always remains on center stage. This could make for an interesting Genever & Tonic."
