Challenge Your Palate

Genever is a malt whiskey enhanced with botanicals. Instead of starting with a neutral spirit like vodka and infusing it with botanicals to make gin, we make a flavor-rich whiskey and add herbs, roots, and other botanicals. Unlike gin, which is predominantly spiced with juniper berries, genever is more balanced, using many ingredients to make a complex spirit.

Popular in the pre-Prohibition United States, genever was imported from western Europe 4:1 over its younger cousin, gin, and was the spirit used to develop most cocktails that we now make with that relative, like the Tom Collins or even the Martini.

Extremely flexible,  it can stand as a replacement for gin, whiskey, and even tequila in many cocktails. Echo Spirits Genever is very approachable and will appeal to drinkers of its cousin spirits.

"Big bold nose of botanical energy, with flavors of earthy clay and ripe stone fruits and an underlying hint of tang that make this fun to roll around in the mouth."

THE GENEVER CONVENTION

THE GENEVER CONVENTION

When we started working on our genever, we quickly realized we could use some help. While our distillers are adept at creating rich and interesting spirits, botanical notes and infusions are best left to a trained palate. Enter the bartenders of Columbus.

Echo Spirits Distilling Co. has been fortunate enough to get to know some of the most talented bartenders in the city, so we decided to lean on these friendships. We reached out, explained genever-making, and waited. One by one, each of these individuals trickled into our distillery to show off what they had made. Each person came in with a unique and exciting infusion, and we were absolutely blown away, once again, by the quality of what we received.

Taking each of these infusions, we set to work like mad scientists, blending and tasting until our palates were raw. We tore apart what we received and brought together all of the best elements to create the Echo Spirits Genever. 

The names of everyone who helped us figure out how to make our genever are listed on the inside of every bottle of Echo Spirits Genever and always will be.

This product, much like Echo Spirits itself, would be nothing if not for the community surrounding it. We proudly present to you the creators of our genever, The Genever Convention.
