100% natural and velvety soft

It requires ultimate mastery of the complex distilling process, but we succeeded! Thanks to Grietje, the handmade still, named after the co-founder of the family distillery, and thanks to our master distillers. Together they managed to come up with a very special triple-fired herbal distillate of juniper, iris root and star anise. It gives the Hooghoudt Premium Young Jenever unprecedented taste nuances. Hints of elderflower and cardamom make the 100% natural and velvety gin irresistible.

What others ask us

Jenever is a traditional Dutch spirit, distilled from grains and flavored with juniper berries and other herbs. It has a distinctive flavor that ranges from light and refreshing to full and spicy. Jenever is often drunk neat, but can also be used as a basis for cocktails. It is a drink with a rich history and plays an important role in Dutch drinking culture. Taste the authentic taste of jenever and discover a piece of Dutch tradition in every sip.

According to the 'older' recipes, jenever is made with a higher percentage of malt wine than the 'younger' recipe. It's all about the malt wine.

We let a mixture of alcohol, water (or extract) and herbs boil. The fine aroma substances evaporate from the herbs and we condense them. This is how we capture flavors, but mainly smells. The color of the mixture remains in the kettle. Bee Hooghoudt we use for this.

A juniper is an evergreen shrub that belongs to the cypress family. It is a common plant in Europe, Asia and North America. The berries of the juniper are used to make jenever and gin, and have a characteristic taste and smell. They are also used as a seasoning in cooking.
