World of Genever

"A mainstay in the European Low Countries since the Middle Ages, genever arrived in the U.S. in the 1800's and became the spirit of choice.  In fact, in Jerry Thomas’ third book, one in four of the cocktails is based on genever, and many of the gin 'classics' we accept today were actually developed with genever.  Although the World Wars and Prohibition drove genever into obscurity in the U.S., it remained and remains the national spirit of The Netherlands.  Nowadays genever is being rediscovered by mixologists worldwide, inspired by both interest in historic recipes and even-more-creative cocktails." -
