The Flying Dutchman

We recently hosted the team from Bols Genever for an evening of cocktails and dining. To ensure their big night was a success our bar team created a special aperitif cocktail using Bols Genever.

Genever is a real bartender’s spirit – originally created in Holland in the 16th century this bold and powerful juniper flavoured spirit is a precursor to modern day gin that has the complex notes of a brown spirit but the mixabilty you’d expect from a white spirit. It’s a really remarkable spirit that makes for distinctive and memorable drinks.

Our Genever “Flying Dutchman” cocktail is a combination of two classic recipes. We’ve taken elements of a champagne cocktail and elements of an Aviation to produce a straight up sparkler. Named after the famous ghost ship of 17th century folklore the “Flying Dutchman” is a great option if you want an unusual and original drink.
