Made according to a 19th century recipe, a base of 50 per cent malt wine, triple-distilled in a pot still from rye, wheat and corn is blended with traditional genever botanicals including juniper, hops, cloves, anise, liquorice and ginger. The blend is then aged for 18 months in Limousin oak casks.
Launched 1st September 2011, this Barrel-Aged Genever was originally developed for the U.S. market and is presented in one litre clay bottles. This is said to be a re-launch of Bols’ first Barrel-Aged Genever originally released in 1883.
