Food pairing: The jenever is not aged in oak barrels, which gives RAW Genever the fresh character of a young jenever with the body of a korenwijn before it goes into the barrel.RAW Genever is a pure piece of craftsmanship. The alcohol in this jenever is not the flavor carrier of the herbs as in gin, but is composed as a flavoring agent in which the herbs and spices are used to accentuate the taste style.

Jenever style: Hooghoudt Blended Oloroso, Cask Aged Genever 40& alc.
Taste description: Round, Cinnamon-Sweet. Appley, Spicy. White chocolate vanilla.
Food pairing: Nose: 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. Complemented with fruity scents of red cherry and the fresh spice of coriander and juniper. Very tempting. Taste: In the taste the ripeness of dried currants and raisins with notes of cherry and almond. Soft, full ripe tones, wood flavor and fresh spicy accents. Delicious full and long aftertaste with sweet tones. The sherry Oloroso lover is struck in his heart by this gin, which has been aged for three years!
