Boompjes-Old-Dutch.png

Boompjes Old Dutch is the original "oude Jenever" as we say in Holland.

We make this genever with 20% moutwijn, the key ingredient to any genever. Any Old Jenever has to have a minimum of 15% and a maximum of 25% maltwine, aged or unaged. Ours is aged for 3 years and doesn't contain any coloring. Straight from the barrel and carefully blended with the freshest mandarins and juniperberries.

We make this moutwijn ourselves in our distillery and it's 3 times distilled up to 75% alcohol, and aged for 3 years in American Oak barrels giving a little bit of that sweet vanilla notes.

We love to drink it in a Bogi, 50ml of Genever mixed with Fever Tree Ginger Ale and garnished with a wedge of lime.
