Filliers 8 Year Barrel Aged Genever
Filliers // Belgium
Filliers' range of Barrel Aged Genever aims to make quality genever accessible. Instead of focusing on the different types of genever (jonge, oude, etc.), Filliers chose to target age statements. The Filliers 8 Year Barrel Aged Genever consists of 100 percent maltwine made from malted barley, rye & corn. A small amount of juniper distillate is added after the aging process.
GeneverGenever is a juniper-flavored spirit which combines a botanically-flavored, neutral spirit with a maltwine. Only made in Belgium, the Netherlands, and in specific regions of France and Germany. Jonge genever is made with a maximum of 15% maltwine. Oude genever uses at least 15% of maltwine. Korenwijn genever uses at least 51% of maltwine.

"The nose showcases soft notes of grains (the rye is especially recognizable) with hints of oranges and vanilla, as well as a whisper of juniper. The texture is creamy and inviting, with subtle flavors of banana, fudge and Demerara sugar. Even though it works wonderfully well to drink it neat, this should do well in a variety of classic cocktails."
