Jenever works well in combination with fresh, spicy or grainy beers, but can certainly also be used alongside your 'pilsje'.
A Kopstoot is a drink that hits 'hard' and consists of a good glass of beer and a glass of jenever. We are fans! Jenever works well in combination with fresh, spicy or grainy beers, but can certainly also be used alongside your 'pilsner'. Ultimate enjoyment? Sip your gin and then take a sip of your beer, let the flavors merge and intensify.
Hooghoudt Premium Young Jenever and a Triple Beer
An ultimate headbutt combination! The fruity and spicy of a slightly malty and lightly roasted Tripel match very nicely with the properties of the Premium Jonge Jenever from Hooghoudt, without dominating!
Hooghoudt Old Grain Gin and an American Pale Ale
Beer brewed with botanicals, herbs and spices works very well in combination with Oude Graanjenever Hooghoudt. This contains notes of vanilla, grain and a hint of dried fruit. A warm, stimulating combination with citrus notes, a light bitterness and a malty aftertaste.
Hooghoudt Korenwijn and a Quadrupel beer
The true enthusiast goes for one Korenwijn in the headbutt. The strength of the combination is here in the spiciness of the Korenwijn and the sweetness of the Quadrupel. The sweetness smoothes out the sourness of the Korenwijn Van in Hooghoudt slightly, enhancing the spiciness and intensity.
The Kopstoot is a traditional Dutch ritual and an ultimate taste combination. In addition, a good gin gives your specialty beer even more depth. Cheers!
