Boompjes Genever is made the traditional “Young” genever or as we say in Holland; Jonge Jenever. We make this genever with 10% maltwine, the key ingredient to any genever. And in our case; it’s made with rye, malt and corn for extra flavour! The law stipulates that young genever has a minimum of 1,5% and a maximum of 15% maltwine. Ours is at 10% and provides a hefty dose of malt-action to work in cocktails, mixed drinks or just straight up.
We make this maltwine ourselves in our distillery and it’s 4 times distilled up to 70% alcohol, keeping the character of the malt, rye and corn in the product. Next to the maltwine, we have distilled an “esprit” of 6 botanicals; obviously juniper but also vanilla, lavender, licorice, coriander seeds and angelica root.
