Zuidam Old Genever 3 year old Single Barrel only the best casks are selected after the genever has been aged for a minimum of 36 months. The Genever is distilled from the finest selection of Malted Barley, Rye and Corn. The mash of these grains is distilled three times in a pot still after a week of fermentation. This gives this Old Genever a rich base for the botanicals. The botanicals that are used in this Genever are Juniper, Liquorice root and Aniseed among several others. The Zuidam Old Genever 3 year old Single barrel is bottled from one selected cask and it is not blended with other casks. Because new or very young casks are used this results in a very special genever with rich vanilla and toffee notes and in a really smooth mouth feel.
:Nose: hints of juniper with rich vanilla, toffee and oak
Flavour: rich notes of oak, toffee and fudge
- A Dutch masterpiece - Review by Guy Inchbald, Upton on Severn
Zuidam's Zeer Oude Genever is gentle and subtle. The young wood of its cask lends a smooth and assured character, with the juniper and other flavours blending in underneath. Beautifully balanced and always a treat.
