Golden straw color. Attractive aromas and flavors of vanilla toffee, buttery dark roasted nuts, cedar, and whisky barrel with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, captivating, medium-long finish evoking notes of cashew milk on raisin bran, spiced nuts and dates, cola, and pepper. A rock-solid Aged Genever that will be versatile.

Barrel-Aged Genever

Spirits Glass Rocks Straw.jpg
Serve in a Rocks Glass
Barrel-aged Genever from the Netherlands has been aged - often in small French oak barrels - for two to three years. Barrel aging adds complexity and results in genevers with a golden color and notes of yeast, pastry dough, raisin bread and crushed nuts. The finish is quite flavorful and earthy and quality is usually excellent. These are superb mixers for artisan cocktails.
