Theoriginal

The original recipe from 1820. Back then, Bols introduced a new recipe with a subtler and more harmonious taste. That’s the one that ended up revolutionizing cocktails. It’s still as complex and powerful today.

Barrelaged

Our premium genever. Hand-produced in limited quantities by our Master Distiller. Stored for 18 months in oak casks from the French Limousin region – hence its pale golden color and sweet, rich, oaky, flavor. For the true genever connoisseurs of the world. We know you three love it.

Malt spirit is the heart of genever. It’s what makes genever genever, you could say. We wanted to showcase our unique malt spirit in its purest form – just like how they were drinking it way back when in the 17th century. Now bartenders and connoisseurs can taste the origins of this exclusive spirit.

Maltspirityousay?

Malt spirit is the soul of genever. It’s a tricky business to make and we like ours triple-distilled, so it’s a good thing we’ve got some-400 years practice in. Bols started producing genever and liqueurs in 1575. Since then we have mastered the art of distillation, and passed on this knowledge from one Master Distiller to the next.

Today, that’s Piet van Leijenhorst. Our Master Distiller triple-distills his own combination of rye, corn and wheat in copper pot stills to 47% alcohol to create our superior malt spirit. It’s from here that he blends the spirit with his selection of botanicals, then bringing that blend to the magical number of 42% alcohol

42% — the percentage that makes a genever perfect for making cocktails. Or, so the world’s leading bartenders say.

Kopstootje (pronounced cop-stoat-cha, meaning ‘headbutt’ in Dutch) is a traditional Amsterdam genever-drinking ritual, where the drinker takes their first sip from an almost over-full tulip glass without using their hands − for fear of spilling. Best enjoyed with a beer.
