Bols has been making genever in Holland since 1664.
While English gin is now very popular in America, back in the 19th century the malty Dutch version (genever) was a best seller. Many of the cocktails that are currently made with gin were originally made with genever.
Bols Genever should be stored and served from a very cold refrigerator - that's how it was served to me, at various lounges, when I visited Den Hague and Rotterdam, Holland

I'm happy Bols Genever is back but it's too bad they didn't bring it back at a lower price point. $35 for a 750ml bottle of an unaged spirit largely obtained from grain? Come on. For example, I can get a 1.75 liter bottle of Buffalo Trace bourbon for that price and it sure takes a heck of lot more time, skill, and money for a distillery to make something like that.
