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.
