    Genever 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.

Tasting Notes

"On the nose there's a lovely soft graininess and bright notes of lemon and orange zest, while the juniper is very subtle. It has an inherent sweetness (almost vanilla-esque) that's really enjoyable. The mouthfeel is on point, as this is super oily. It's the same elements that shine on the palate here, but with an added black pepperiness and a tinge of coriander."
