dutch delight with bols & genever, london

14th March
Bols Genever has teamed up with the folks at Rivington Grill to present you with an evening of genever, beer and hoptails.
Although it’s the grandparent of the gin we drink today, flavour-wise genever actually has more in common with whiskey. This is because it contains a pot distilled grain alcohol traditionally known as moutwijn (maltwine) in the Netherlands. This flavoursome base spirit makes genever a perfect match for beer.

Whisky and beer cocktails? Are you sure?
Well firstly, the process of making whisky is pretty much identical to that of making beer - right up to the point it is distilled and aged. Whisky and beer are close cousins.
Secondly, Auchentoshan is the only Scottish single malt to triple distill every drop - creating a whisky which is incredibly smooth and versatile. A malt perfect for mixing - who knew?
So, whisky and beer cocktails - yes, we are sure!
