DUTCH GIN

The Dutch gin is also known as Genever or Jenever. The gin is a malted grain-based spirit which was traditionally produced by distilling malt wine to 50% ABV. Due to the lack of refined distilling techniques, distillers of the gin added spices and herbs to add to the flavour.

The first Dutch gin was commonly used as herbal medicine and could be found in pharmacies. Pharmacists would recommend their clients to use the gin to cure skin infections by bathing in water boiled with juniper berries. Some people even smoked juniper berries to disinfect their houses.

There are two types of Dutch gin; old and young. The spirits are categorised according to the technique used for distillation. The production of the young gin began during the Second World War when ingredients were limited. Distillers started using molasses and sugar beet during the production process, and this made the spirit sweeter and softer.

Some of the features of the Dutch gin that make it unique from the other types of gins are the taste and colour. It has a dark colour due to the malt grains used during distillation. 

The production of Dutch gin occurs in two steps. The first step involves the transitioning of grains into a fermented wash and distilled malt wine. Lastly, the malt wine produced in the first stage is re-distilled and combined with juniper berries. The gin was commonly used by English soldiers during the war in Holland.
