Review and Tasting

Sampled on 28/06/2018

Appearance

(sample bottle batch 0702) Clear, faint straw yellow.

Aroma

Pungent, spicy, herbal, nutty and bready with delicate floral aromas.

Taste

Dry piney juniper, floral and nutty bready notes with light but assertive cardamom and peppery spice.

Aftertaste

Long piney finish with nutty breadiness and light spice.

Overall

What’s not to like? A great tasting, traditionally styled genever made using waste bread. “This bottle saves seven slices of bread” is written on the recycled paper seal over the synthetic stopper. We usually prefer synthetic to real cork but in this case, given its sustainable credentials, perhaps a cork or even a metal screw cap would be preferable closure.
