We made two old-style genevers, containing a high amount of malt-spirit. Our green-labelled beauty is a contemporary interpretation of an old-Style Genever. Golden in colour, four times distilled, has fragrant cinnamon and apple on the nose, and crisp hints of bitterness. Made with distillates of Tonkabean, gentian root and juniper. Our crisp & hoppy genever is one of a kind. it’s fruity, refreshing and your beers best friend. You will taste hints of tropical fruit and a slight citrus-bitterness of the hops. Made with distillates of hops, timut pepper, pineapple and juniper. Combine this Genever with your favorite Weizen, I.P.A or any other good lager.
The journey of
In January 2015, after enjoying Christmas back in Netherlands, the four went back to their University town of Lund, Sweden, clutching a bottle . This almost forgotten little bit of history was a bottle containing Old Genever. So that night, the four friends: Leonard, Sebastian, Benedict and Ruben, cracked open the bottle and promptly began to wonder why this Dutch national drink had lost its popularity. That night, in a cold student flat in Sweden … Kever Genever was born! A brand name that is nothing less than the result of consulting the online rhyme dictionary.
Kever Genever can be downed in two ways: in a cocktail, or as a Headbutt 2.0. We personally love the Dutch habit to take a ‘kopstootje’. However, the subtle maltiness makes it a perfect spirit to experiment with and it is the starting point for an extensive range of cocktails. Experts say Genever is the bridge between Gin and Whisky.
Our Genever is handcrafted with love and passion by our master distiller Arthur Kruijt. All component of our genever, the maltwine, the grain-alcohol and the tincture distillates are made by us. Something which nowadays is only done by a handful of distilleries in the Netherlands.
