Genevieve is our attempt to re-create the earliest gins, which came to be known as genever (or Geneva gin, or Hollands gin, or Schiedam-style gin). Many early cocktail recipes that call for gin actually mean genever gin, which has a strong flavor profile because it is pot distilled from a grain mash. The most common way to consume genever has always been straight: either chilled, over ice, orbest of allshaken with ice. A slight haze may form, which is normal for this all-natural product.
Martinis and gin and tonics are not made with genever but, rather, with modern "distilled dry gin."
