Hooghoudt Blend Peated

This highly unorthodox Blend brings together two taste worlds. On the one hand, smoke and fruits that take you to an open fire on the beach with a fresh sea breeze. On the other hand, the warm sweet elements of cocoa and freshly roasted coffee beans. With this peated old jenever we push the boundaries of traditions and craft, we have continued where others stop. A drink for tough old sailors reinvented for the discerning taste of new generations.

What am I tasting?

The attractive, unmistakably smoky scent is complemented by surprising notes of cocoa and coffee. The influence of the Bourbon casks is reflected in scents such as vanilla and honey.

  • Lemon zest

    Lemon zest

    Lemon peel refers to the outer layer of a lemon's peel, also known as the yellow skin. It has a strong and fresh citrus scent and contains natural oils that contain the distinctive taste of lemons.

  • juniper berries

    juniper berries

    The juniper berry provides the characteristic taste of jenever: fresh bitter, slightly spicy. In collaboration with the Drentse Jeneverbesgilde, we pick these ourselves every year on the Drentse heath.

  • Cocoa

    Cocoa

    Cocoa is the basis for chocolate and has a rich, intense and bittersweet taste. Cocoa naturally contains caffeine and theobromine, which can have a stimulating effect.

  • vanilla

    vanilla

    Vanilla, the refined and sensual flavor obtained from the exotic vanilla orchid, adds an irresistible, luxurious taste.

  • Honey

    Honey

    Honey is a naturally sweet product produced by honeybees from the nectar of flowers. It has a delicious sweet taste and a viscous texture.

Jenever is actually the predecessor of the gin style that we now all know as the London Dry Gin. Jenever and gin are both distilled alcoholic beverages with juniper berries as the main flavouring. The difference is in the production method and flavor profile. Jenever is made by distilling malt wine with juniper berries, while gin is made by flavoring neutral alcohol with botanicals. Jenever is often maltier and softer, while gin can have more varied flavours.

We allow malt wine, grain alcohol and even our classic JDG to mature in oak sherry casks or port casks. The tones of the barrel, and what was once in it, soak into the alcohol. This is how special flavors are created.

Each Hooghoudt spirit contains a unique selection of the finest regional herbs from the Hooghoudtherb garden on the Ewsum estate. Classic monastery herbs such as nettle leaf, blessed thistle herb and orange peel bitter give our gins a fine, soft taste. In addition, spice supplier Jacob Hooy supplies the best natural herbs to complement our regional herbs.
