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.
Bringing the Amsterdam Spirit to the World
In January 2015 we found ourselves ‘alone’ on a dark and cold Swedish night accompanied with some beers and a bottle of old Genever. We decided to give it a go, and were completely astounded. Astounded by the complexity we tasted and by the possibilities we immediately envisioned. We wondered why this beverage with a sound tradition of some 400 years, had lost its popularity, and was mostly unknown among our generation. With some serious tweaking and updating, we were certain we could revive this versatile drink. To make it more modern, more accessible, and more suitable for those who are living in the urban, and who are driven by curiosity. Now, after a lot of experimentations with our master distiller, and after winning several prices already, we know we were right.
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.
