Hooghoudt RAW Genever 70cl
Taking a complex mix of malt spirit’s grainy essence this genever is deliciously blended with herbs and spices
Hooghoudt RAW Genever
For their RAW Genever, Hooghoudt have combined four different malt spirits (3 individually distilled - barley, wheat, rye and the classic malt mix of wheat corn and rye), and blended this with a carefully selected selection of juniper (it is Genever!), herbs and spices.
As this is a RAW genever, it is not aged in Oak barrels, which gives it the fresh character of a young genever. Unlike with gin, the alcohol base of malt is not just a carrier for the oils and spices - but also a flavour in itself of the genever itself - and adds a distinct flavour.
The aroma of this genever has subtle grain notes, which are complemented with juniper, citrus and a herbal background. The flavour is again full of the grain used in its creation, with citrus, coriander and a mild touch of sweetness. Velverty in the mouth, and with a slight spice in the aftertaste.

If enjoyed neat, we recommend drinking at room temperature. It also works really well in the mix - try with Three Cents tonic water, or for a citrus hit - with their pink grapefruit soda. For either, take a large glass and fill with ice. Add 50ml of the genever, and pour over 150 - 200ml of your chosen soda. Stir well, garnish with a slice of grapefruit and enjoy!
