From the bartender’s corner – Oude Genever

Genever (also Jenever) is the original predecessor of gin. (There was an in between genre called Tom Gin). This alcohol goes back five centuries! The distillation process was crude enough that the monks thought it best to put in juniper and other herbs and was mostly used for medicinal purposes (which it was not). Between Oude and the Jonge versions (Old and Young), I prefer the Oude. This particular one is aged for a year and to me it gives a whole different nose and complexity to the drink.
