Bols produce one of the finest young Genevers in Holland. The company has re-released their classically styled Dutch standard based on their 19th Century recipe. It's distilled three times from 100% pure grains (rye, wheat and corn), 50% of which is malted. Fourteen ingredients such as angelica root, aniseed, ginger root, apricot nuts and learwyt seed are then infused for flavouring. Typically consumed out of a shot glass, or, as preferred in Holland, a tulip glass, it's best served chilled. Bottled at a slightly higher proof than the standard Bols Jong, this has also seen a stylish packaging overhaul for the bar scene.

Other reviews... Clear. Bold aromas of frosted raisin scone and fruit cake follow through on a very smooth and satiny entry to a glycerous dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with excellent depth and balance. Finishes with a vivacious, sweet oatmeal, dried flower and pepper accented fade. A delicious, vibrant and bready genever that will be great on its own or in cocktails. 42% Alc./Vol
