Gin was made for it’s first 600 years of existence from a whiskey base in a copper pot still. This Genever or Dutch-style gin became less popular after the invention of the modern industrial and thus vodka based gins dominate liquor store shelves today. Inspired by a 19th century Pennsylvanian distiller’s recipe, our aim is to bring back this lost gem of distillation.
With a grain mash of rye, wheat, malted barley, and a complex family of botanicals, Ginever is rounder and fuller than modern gins. Juniper berries remain forefront but are joined by a number of other botanicals including earthy cardamom, peppery cubeb and fragrant lavender create a layered flavor experience.
As with all Wigle products, this handcrafted spirit is made from scratch in our copper pot still in very small batches, using only organic ingredients and local heirloom grains.
It’s perfect for whiskey and gin lovers alike.
