Bols Genever Reviews

An interesting find

Having read about it decided to buy and try - it has a very interesting flavor - earthy, 'bready' which you will either like or not depending on your taste.
I tried it with a good tonic and enjoyed it but it won't be for everyone - like Marmite !

I love it. So smooth, a very nice taste. A nice 'borroltje' for all occasions.

Very smooth I find.

This drink makes a very fine Tom Collins I must say.

Sam, I understand that this is a sipping gin and not really for mixing/cocktails etc?

Muddy, brown tasting.

Can somebody explain to me the practical uses of this spirit please?
I recently ordered some and am at a loss as to what to do with it.
I appreciate it's history as a pre-gin juniper heavy spirit but I find it's earthiness (much like natural saké) is just too much for modern ginny drinks and cocktails. When combined with tonic, be it schweppes or fever tree, its muddy, soil-like flavours overpower the tonic and so far, have been unsuccessful. Simply, not delicious.
Upon discovering that the spirit has such a powerful flavour, i tried splitting it with other gins as a base in some cocktails. Using 25ml tangueray no.10 and 25ml genever as a base for both a classic tom collins and gin martini yielded fairly similar results.. a passive aggressive, woody taste that was more akin to a peaty whisky.
I intend to try it as an ingredient in an Old Fashioned style cocktail, as either a rinse or split base spirit but it seems my intentions of creating a delicious, full bodied, juniper heavy, crisp and sharp cocktail have failed for the time being.
Surprisingly (or not so, considering the similarities to whisky) this drink is particularly tasty neat, on or off the rocks.
If anybody has any experiance with this Genever and could suggest some cocktails that are genuinly enhanced by thr presnrv of said spirit please get in touch,
