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 placed in a barrel, after which the then copper boiler was allowed to retire. Now 25 years later by Bert, fourth generation, bottled while he and his children built a new distillery as part of the Graanrepubliek has started in Bad Nieuweschans. The circle is round.

What am I tasting?

Hooghoudt Aged Genever 25 years is characterized by the full nose of currants and raisins with a surprising hint of laurel and iris root. Then subtle fragrance notes of sandalwood and juniper unfold.

A warm and distinctive taste of sherry Oloroso with roasted almonds, sun-dried fig and vanilla. The flavors from the wood are fully absorbed into the liquid. Powerful, elegant with a clear role for spicy and savory flavor notes. This whole is brought into balance by fresh taste notes of sandalwood and laurel. A seductive long and full aftertaste.

  • juniper berries

    juniper berries

    The juniper berry provides the characteristic taste of jenever: fresh bitter, slightly spicy. In collaboration with the Drentse Jeneverbesgilde, we pick these ourselves every year on the Drentse heath.

  • Sandalwood

    Sandalwood

    Sandalwood has a warm, woody and spicy flavor. It has notes of vanilla, amber and a hint of smoke. It can also have slightly sweet, earthy and floral undertones.

  • Laurel

    Laurel

    Laurel is an evergreen shrub or tree with glossy, dark green leaves and aromatic properties. It is often used in cooking for flavorful dishes and also has symbolic meanings, such as victory and wisdom.

  • iris root

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.
