About this SPIRIT
Zuidam Distillers was started back in 1975 by Fred van Zuidam. The idea was to start a small distillery that only produced very exclusive products. He build a small distillery of 300 square meters with 1 small copper still and 1 small production line. After a long and struggling beginning it took Fred van Zuidam over 10 years to create the reputation of being the finest distillery in the Netherlands.
But it was only after his wife Helene van Zuidam started creating the packaging for the products of the distillery that business really took off. In 1989 Zuidam expanded their warehouse with 600 square meters and one production line. These days both sons Patrick and Gilbert run the distillery under the watchful eyes of their parents. With Patrick caring for the distillery and production and Gilbert looking after the customers.
They run a state of the art distillery of 3600 square meters with 4 brand new copper stills, over 1000 oak barrels, 4 production lines and a modern tank storage. The distillery produces Liqueurs, Gin (Genever), Rum & Whiskies.

For Zuidam Old Genever 5 year old Single Barrel only the best casks are selected after the genever has been aged for a minimum of 60 months. The Genever is distilled from the finest selection of Malted Barley, Rye and Corn. The mash of these grains is distilled three times in a pot still after a week of fermentation.
This gives this Old Genever a rich base for the botanicals. The botanicals that are used in this Genever are Juniper, Liquorice root and Aniseed among several others. The Zuidam Old Genever 5 year old Single barrel is bottled from one selected cask and it is not blended with other casks. Because new or very young casks are used this results in a very special genever with very rich vanilla and toffee notes and in a really silky smooth mouth feel.
