I taste my way through the wonderful world of Dutch (and Belgian) genever with Piet van Leijenhorst, master distiller at Amsterdam-based Bols.

He’s promoting “Genever: America’s Lost European Spirit,”  an E.U.-sponsored marketing initiative to introduce American consumers to the grain-based juniper spirit produced throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and small pieces of France and Germany. Without genever, there would never have been any such thing as gin.

As always, thanks to Chmcl Str8jckt for providing the podcast’s theme music.
