There is a very interesting piece in The Independent about the return of interest in Dutch Genever Рthe drink that we British adopted and modified into the London Dry Gin, enjoyed worldwide in the classic  gin & tonic now. What piqued my interest was the description of it being ideal for use in an Old-Fashioned, which is one of my favourite cocktails, and I have already detailed in a previous post.

Genever is described as being much more complex and malty than our familiar dry spirit, closer in flavour terms to a whisky than the white spirit of a London Dry

Today being Friday, I am considering walking down to the Whisky Exchange to see if they have any bottles.
