Product description

Bols Genever is a traditional Dutch spirit known for its rich history and unique flavor profile, originating from Amsterdam. Genever, often referred to as the grandfather of gin, is a juniper-flavored spirit that combines the complexity of botanicals with a malt wine base, giving it a distinctly different taste from what most people associate with modern gin.

The Lucas Bols distillery, which produces Bols Genever, boasts an impressive history dating back to 1575, making it one of the oldest distilled spirits companies in the world. Over the centuries, Bols has perfected the art of genever production, adhering to traditional recipes and methods while also embracing innovation.

Bols Genever is characterized by its smooth, well-balanced blend of botanicals, including juniper, anise, coriander, and various others, which are distilled in a malt wine base. This base is made from a mixture of corn, rye, and wheat, fermented and then distilled, providing a rich, full-bodied flavor that sets genever apart from other spirits.

The traditional serving method for Bols Genever in Amsterdam and throughout the Netherlands is in a tulip-shaped glass, filled to the brim, and sipped gently. This method highlights the spirit's complex flavors and aromatic bouquet. Bols Genever can also be enjoyed in a variety of cocktails, with the spirit's versatility making it a favorite among bartenders and mixologists. Classics like the Dutch Courage and the original Gin Fizz are often made with genever for an authentic taste experience.

Bols Genever's production involves a careful distillation process, where the botanicals are distilled separately in copper pot stills to extract the purest flavors. The different distillates are then expertly blended with the malt wine and aged in oak casks, allowing the flavors to marry and develop over time.

In recent years, Bols Genever has experienced a resurgence in popularity, particularly among cocktail enthusiasts and spirit connoisseurs who appreciate its unique taste and historical significance. Its revival is part of a broader trend of rediscovering and appreciating traditional spirits, and Bols Genever from Amsterdam stands at the forefront of this movement, celebrated for its quality, craftsmanship, and rich heritage.
