Genenver, sometimes known as Dutch gin, is the ancestor of modern gin types. Like gin, it’s flavored with juniper berries. It may have a malty flavor, depending on the style of production.
Genever comes in two styles: oude (old) and jonge (young). These names refer to different production styles: oude genever is made from Dutch maltwine, while the lighter jonge genever is typically made from grain spirit or sugar-based alcohol.
