Old Oloroso barrels are the most sought after barrels in the world of aging. We do understand why. This full and round aged Blend represents a new generation of refined blends that combines the unprecedented sweet complexity of old Oloroso casks with the refreshing kick of natural fruit and spices.

What am I tasting?

Full, rich and fragrant. Notes from the aging in sherry Oloroso casks such as currants, vanilla, nuts, dried figs and spices come to the fore. Supplemented with fruity scents of red cherry and the fresh spicy of coriander and juniper. Very seductive.

  • 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.

  • vanilla

    vanilla

    Vanilla, the refined and sensual flavor obtained from the exotic vanilla orchid, adds an irresistible, luxurious taste.

  • fresh coriander

    fresh coriander

    Refreshing and spicy botanical that provides a surprising flavor boost with its distinctive citrusy and earthy flavor profile.

  • Clove

    Clove

    The heartwarming and rich spice extracted from the flower buds of the tropical clove tree imparts a delicious, exotic aroma and unmistakably spicy taste.

  • Cherry

    Cherry

    Cherries have a delicious sweet taste. They have a deep red color and are prized for their delicious taste and nutritional value.

  • Currants

    Currants

    Currants are small dried grapes known for their sweet and intense flavour. They are a good source of dietary fiber, antioxidants and several vitamins and minerals.

Jenever is actually the predecessor of the gin style that we now all know as the London Dry Gin. Jenever and gin are both distilled alcoholic beverages with juniper berries as the main flavouring. The difference is in the production method and flavor profile. Jenever is made by distilling malt wine with juniper berries, while gin is made by flavoring neutral alcohol with botanicals. Jenever is often maltier and softer, while gin can have more varied flavours.

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.

Each Hooghoudt spirit contains a unique selection of the finest regional herbs from the Hooghoudtherb garden on the Ewsum estate. Classic monastery herbs such as nettle leaf, blessed thistle herb and orange peel bitter give our gins a fine, soft taste. In addition, spice supplier Jacob Hooy supplies the best natural herbs to complement our regional herbs.
