In the late 19th century, technological advances enabled distillers to produce neutral spirits at very high proofs. When re-distilled with complex blends of juniper berries and other natural botanicals, these neutral spirits were transformed into what is known today as modern “distilled dry gin. ” The earliest gins, however—which came to be known as “genever” (or “Geneva gin,” or “Hollands gin,” or “Schiedam-style gin”)—were a very different product. To be sure, juniper berries and other botanicals are used in both styles, but 17th century “genever” gin was distilled in primitive pot stills from a grain mash. Genevieve is an interpretation of this ancient and mysterious gin style. A grain mash of wheat, barley, and rye malts is distilled in a traditional copper pot still with the same botanicals used in Junípero Gin. Many early cocktail recipes that call for “gin” actually mean “genever gin,” which has a strong flavor profile because it is pot-distilled from a grain mash. The most common way to consume genever has always been straight: either chilled, over ice, or, best of all, shaken with ice. A slight haze may form, which is normal for this all-natural product. 47. 3% ABV
