The circle is round

The series will ultimately consist of 23% malt wine Genevers aged 27 to 100 years from exceptional ex-Oloroso barrels that are bottled at cask strength. In 1998 by Hero Jan, third generation Hooghoudt, fired and put in barrel after which the then copper boiler was allowed to retire. Bottled now 23 years later by Bert, fourth generation, as he and his children put the finishing touches to a new distillery as part of the Graanrepubliek in Bad Nieuweschans. The circle is round.

We allow malt wine, grain alcohol and even our classic JDG to mature in oak sherry casks or port casks. The tones of the barrel, and what was once in it, soak into the alcohol. This is how special flavors are created.

Sherry oloroso barrels are barrels originally used to age sherry wine. Oloroso is a type of sherry that is darker, richer and more intense in flavor. These casks are often used in the gin (and whiskey) industry to age gin, enriching the gin with the characteristic sherry notes, such as dried fruit, nuts and spices.
