Zuidam 5 Year Old Bottling Note
A 5 year old Dutch Genever/Jenevers gin, it's a single barrel Genever made with the finest malted barley, rye and corn. The mash is triple distilled after a week of fermentation. The result is a rich, intense spirit.
Zuidam 5 Year Old Zeer Oude Genever
Great drink! Very different from 'young' Genever...
I bought a bottle of this for my father, who knows Genever from the olden days, and he really enjoyed it.
This is *totally* different from the more common and more expensive 'young' style Genevers like Ketel 1 and Bols. Taste-wise it has a lot in common with whisky: very richly flavored, with a very thick palate. Great value for money, and well worth a try.

My first Genever and this is simply delightful. The smooth blend of juniper flavours with hints of rye are very moreish, and a great alternative to a single malt. Will certainly try more after this.
