Although 'Genever' style Gin is largely unknown to most Australians, it has in fact been in and out of the country for some time. (The first recorded Genever for sale in Australia was in August 22nd, 1811.) Genever Gin is decidedly different in taste than that of the more familiar London Dry Gins – fuller and riper, although similar botanicals are used in its manufacture only in different proportions. The chief point of difference is the spirit base used in Dutch Gin which, unlike its New World counterparts, is not a completely tasteless neutral grain spirit. Rather, it is distilled in a pot still from a mash containing a large proportion of malt, which on distillation produces some congeners normally associated with whisky. Dutch Gins are also generally distilled at a lower alcoholic strength than New World types.
This is a flavoured version of the original Genever Gin style and is considered something of a hidden treasure by Dutch women, who for decades have sipped Berry Genever on ice. At 20% alcohol, with a sweet natural berry flavour and dry finish it is a refreshing style of spirit well suited to Australia's climate. Drinks well with a squeeze of lime or mixed with soda or lemonade. The colour and flavour of this spirit is also fabulous in mixed drinks or cocktails.
