Double Gold for our Dutch Genever
Less than 1 year after their launch in September 2015, By The Dutch's Old Genever has blown the judges away at its first competitions. Tasted blindly at The 2016 Spirits Masters and The L.A. International Spirits Competition, and up against some very stiff competition, Old Genever was awarded two gold medals.
Genever is one of the world's oldest distilled spirits, beginning with distilling genever (a triple distillate of rye, wheat and corn, what the Dutch call 'Maltwine'), which is then blended with a botanical and juniper berry distillate. The Genever was an immediate success and was quickly transported throughout the world by the sailors of the Dutch East India Trading Company.
By The Dutch are breathing new life into this historical spirit and are extremely proud to have been awarded for their hard work alongside head distiller Herman Jansen.
