Certificate
Triple distilled from a wash of barley malt, corn and rye. The first two distillations are in a copper pot still. Juniper berries are added to the third distillation in column still to produce a maltwine. Part is this maltwine is then redistilled with botanicals (including hops, cloves, anise,...
...liquorice, ginger and citrus), another proportion of the maltwine is redistilled with juniper berries, and a third part of the maltwine is redistilled without added botanicals. All four components are then blended according to a recipe dating from 1942 to produce this genever.
