Founded by a group of young Dutch entrepreneurs in 2015, Kever Genever is packaged in an unconventional tin can. Distilled at distillery 'De Tweekoppige Phoenix', Kever Genever won a silver medal for its packaging at the 2016 International Wine & Spirit Competition. The maltwine content is 22 percent, and botanicals such asĀ fabaceae, gentiana root and juniper are used to give this genever its signature flavor.

Tasting Notes

"An oude genever that is very soft, gentle and really sweet at first nosing. Warming baking spices (cinnamon), raspberry, and hints of caramel glazed apple. Where's the juniper though? The mouthfeel is smooth and oily. A big hit of cinnamon at first, before moving towards herbs and into a more bitter territory. Some ginger too. This is a modern interpretation of genever."
