The old world meets new world with our celery gin. Generations of Rutte distilling methods, along with some of our new secret recipes, come together to create this signature flavor. Distilled with Juniper, Celery, Coriander, Angelica Root, Sweet Orange Peel and Cardamom, the Celery Gin denotes a subtle scent of juniper berries, coriander and cardamon, and tastes zesty and light, with notes of mint, parsley, celery, and anise with a clean and pleasant, yet somewhat salty, finish.
Studying the archives of Simon Rutte’s old notes and methods, we have created an exceptionally smooth spirit. Distilled with Juniper, Coriander, Angelica, Orris Root, Cassia, Bitter & Sweet Orange Peel and Fennel, the Dry Gin denotes a scent of black pepper, with tropical hints of pineapple, hibiscus and citrus, with underlying notes of juniper. It tastes of a light, citrus grapefruit, some hints of fennel and juniper, wild mild forest angelica. The finish is clean, light and dry, with some astringency.
The Old Simon Genever contains some traditional Dutch ingredients, staying true to founder Simon Rutte’s original recipe of genevers and liqueurs. Made from Juniper, Roasted Walnuts and Hazelnuts, Coriander, Angelica, Mace, Fresh Berries and our secret distillate used in all Rutte genevers, known as the “Rutte Mark,” the scent of the Old Simon Genever is one of lightly toasted hazelnut and popcorn, with herbaceous top notes. It tastes of both juniper and ripe apricot, intermingled with toasted wheat and honey. The finish is creamy with hints of white cacao, and little astringency.
