A Tasting with Amsterdam's Bols Genever & Floats from Alchemy Creamery
Thursday, July 25, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)
Lucas Bols gives Bower Hill Society some "Dutch courage" to taste a few of their fine spirits. Founded in Amsterdam in 1575, Lucas Bols is one of the oldest continously operating distilleries in the world. Hosted by The JAR Group, the evening will feature a tasting led by local Bols ambassador Lyndsey Geiger, delicious cocktails made with a variety of the company's spirits, and handcrafted bites from the neighborhood.
Tastings of Lucas Bols's offerings will include:
Bols Genever - The precursor to gin, sometimes called "Dutch gin". Its maltwine (triple-distilled rye, corn and wheat mash distilled in copper pot stills) base sets genever apart from its London Dry successor. This sweet, subtle spirit returned to the US market only five years ago after disappearance during Prohibition. Help us welcome it back!
Damrak Gin - A unique spin on a classic, Damrak Gin goes lighter on the juniper, heavier on some citrus. In 2012, epicurean tastemaker The Fifty Best awarded it a gold medal in the “gin” category at a blind tasting.
Galliano - Both L'autentico and Ristretto will be available for tasting. A sweet, herbal liqueur from Tuscany, L'autentico has an vanilla-anise flavor with subtle citrus and woodsy herbal under notes. Ristretto is a coffee-flavored liqueur.
We are also pleased to announce our collaboration with Alchemy Creamery for this event! Vegan ice cream master Giuseppe Maione will be whipping up boozy floats flavored with our featured spirits.
Local bites and cocktails will be served. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
