Rutte Oude Graanjenever
Rutte & Zn // Netherlands
Rutte Oude Graanjenever is a combination of malt wine, neutral grain spirit, juniper and seven other herbs, spices and fruits. The recipe for this genever was first developed at the start of the 20th century by Anton Rutte, the fifth generation of this legendary distilling family from The Netherlands.
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.
"Just like it should be, this has a grainy foundation with light juniper notes, but also some basil, subtle spices and floral touches. The palate shows a sweeter, maltier side, as well as coriander and a pinch of pepper. A well balanced, inviting Oude Genever."
