Please join the smallest distillery in the Netherlands, Rutte Distillateurs along with Master Distiller, Myriam Hendrickx, Simon Difford, Keli Rivers and Joaquin Simo as they take you through the rise and rebirth of genever and how it has affected modern day drinking habits.  

This interactive three part seminar will take you through a history and tasting of what ancient genevers probably tasted like, and how they compare to new products, genevers and gins, and Rutte's unique heritage and influence on the category. You will even get to taste a historic genever from World War II, from the original, closed bottle! And you will try several botanical distillates, straight from the pot still. Of course we will let you compare some classic cocktails, made with gin versus genever. Don’t miss out on this unique journey with juniper and the opportunity to taste very rare and defunct distillates.
