Review:

Bready genever is aromatised with sherry and kirsch while red currant syrup provides the main flavour with its richness balanced by lemon juice.

History:

A riff on the classic Artist's Special, which is based on Irish Whiskey. The only change is to use Dutch genever in place of whisky – hence the name.

Created in January 2016 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
