This ‘oude’ (literally, ‘old’) genever was created by the Bokma family in 1826 in the Frisian capital of Leeuwarden. ‘Bok’ means a male goat, hence the goat emblem on the crest.

Klaas Bokkeszoon owned a corn mill and a public house and so it was almost natural that his son Freerk Klaaseszoon Bokma established his own distillery, which he named ‘The Source’.

Convinced that the full-bodied contents of a Bokma bottle were already ‘round’ enough, in 1894 Freerk’s son Pieter designed a unique square bottle, predating other famous quadrilaterals.

Oude genevers, despite the name, are not aged. They are so called because they are traditional, old-style genevers, as opposed to the more modern ‘jonge’ genevers. Oude genevers must contain at least 15% malt-wine and often feature more botanicals than jonge styles.
