THE MISSING LINK

Genever is often named the missing link between gin and whisky. Similar to whisky, genever is distilled from grain which provides the spirit with a mature and round taste. But just like with gin a dash of juniper berry distillate is added to give the pallet some fresher and spicy notes. Finally but not necessarily, genever can be aged in oak barrels to give it that smooth and silky flavor that is so characteristic for the best Single Malt whiskies.

THE ANCESTOR OF GIN

It is simply not possible to separate gin from the ancient tradition of genever in the Low Countries. More than that, gin is actually a direct descendant of genever. During the 17th century, English soldiers were in our part of Europe fighting the Eighty Years’ War against Spain. It was then that they sampled genever for the first time, taking this exceptional spirit back to London with them, where they tried to replicate it. Unsuccessfully, as it turns out, because they didn’t have the right recipe. They then named their derivative recipe ‘gin’.
