Rutte Old Simon Genever
The Rutte Old Simon is named for the distillery's founder, Simon Rutte. This great Genever, the original Gin, is said to be made with one of Simon's old recipes dating back to 1872. Forty percent of the spirit utilized is a rich, all-malt pot-still spirit that gives the Old Simon a beautiful, silky viscosity. The Rutte Old Simon Genever offers a unique flavor profile that includes roasted nuts, mace, and celery among the botanicals. It's simply amazing and soon to be a bartender favorite.
Rutte is the smallest distillery in Holland that happens to be partnered with one of the nation's largest distilleries, De Kuyper Royal Distillers. For 143 years Rutte has made its home in the historic port city of Dordrecht, The Netherlands. Their artisinal spirits are made entirely with natural ingredients.
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The nose is very unctuous and malty with scents of grains in the lead supported by hints of roasted nuts and spices (coriander and subtle caraway notes) with soft citrus and juniper accents.
The palate echoes the nose delivering a lush and silky texture that gives life to the toasted spice core with the caraway really accentuated.
Full-bodied with a rich, nearly chewy, malty, and grain core supported by bright juniper, spice, and notes of hazelnut.
How to Serve
This rich and silky Genever is perfect with the best tonic or citrus soda that you can find. Perfectly satisfying and refreshing.
