Kopstoot – Genever

A beer and a genever, the perfect combination!

A “kopstootje” is a Dutch speciality where you combine a beer with a shot (kopstootje) of ¨Jenever¨. Genever is the precursor of gin.

When you drink these two grain beverages side by side, with their own character, you’ll see that the flavors really influence each other. Genever can make your beer taste a lot sweeter and thanks to the beer the genever just tasts nice and refreshing.

There are so many different variations, brewing methods and ways to drink it. Try it and let it convince you. If you have any questions about it, or you like to try a little zip, just ask us and we´re happy to help you!

Bols – Zeer oude jenever

Bols Zeer Oude Genever is a genever of more than 15% malt wine (in the case of Bols, 19% exactly), alcohol of 35% and less than 20 gr. of sugar per liter of mixture. It is called old genever, not because of its aging, but because of the mixture.

It is obtained by creating a mixture of malted barley, rye, corn and wheat, macerate it and distill the paste that is created two to four times, obtaining an alcohol called “malt wine”. On the other hand, the botanical products are introduced, the classic gin products (juniper, angelica, lily root, coriander and regalíz), plus some special, in neutral alcohol, obtained from corn, mixing this infusion with the malt wine.
