K&L Notes

The complexity and depth of a true Holland gin (or Genever) is not fully appreciated in American drinking culture. These are some of the most complex and intensive products to create and involve a number of special techniques that put them much closer in flavor or style to a whisky than a traditional London style gin. The Malt Genever is De Borgen's Korenwijn (100% Malt Spirit). They start with malted corn, rye and barley distilled on small alembic pot styles (read whisky). Then the spirit is blended with Juniper infused malt spirit, alembic extractions of caraway, fennel, and sweet woodruff. The whole package is finished in Oloroso sherry casks to marry the complex flavors and add a round rich nutty character. One of the most versatile and complex ingredients for a cocktail, it's also perfectly palatable being sipped like whisky. This the true Genever of the past, but ready for the future.
