This barrel offers a unique jenever. After five years of patient maturing, our Aged Genever 5 years is ready. The basis is a balanced grain mix consisting of wheat, corn and rye. With this, a malt wine has been distilled that offers all the essential taste notes from the grain a stage; the natural sweetness from the corn, the fresh taste from wheat and the spicy spicy accent from rye.
For a minimum of five years, our malt wine has been able to dissolve the flavors of the sherry oloroso and the flavors from the wood to achieve a perfect marriage in which the grains and the flavors of the cask share the stage.
Hooghoudt Aged Genever 5 years won a silver award in 2020 during the International Wine & Spirits Competetion (IWSC).
