Zuidam Distillers Genever – Special #8 12 Year Old American Oak (38% abv)


Old Genever combines specific qualities of three different grain types.

The grain spirit (malt wine) is distilled from equal parts corn, rye and malted barley. The corn brings a rich sweetness, the rye spiciness and the malted barley provides the backbone.

The spirit is triple distilled in a small pot still. Then it is partially distilled a fourth time with selected botanicals, juniper, Licorice and aniseed.

Finally, the spirit and the botanical distillate are blended and reduced to 45% abv before ageing in small oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Smell : Fruity and fresh with first notes of lemon, orange and subtle notes of Riversaltes wine. Warmer notes of vanilla, honey and dark chocolate give depth.

Taste : Complex with a freshness of the Riversaltes wine in the background. Finally a bit earthy with clearly recognizable tones due to the aging in barrels of French oak.

Finish : Long with elegant notes of oak, chocolate and orange.
