Three times Gold for Hooghoudt
Hooghoudt Raw Genever has won gold at the International Spirit Challenge in the UK. This international competition awarded us with three medals in total.
In addition to gold for Raw Genever, Sweet Spiced Genever received a bronze medal, and the unique alcohol-free spirit Zero Zero 24 was awarded silver. The 26th edition of the annual award this year received more than 1800 entries from just under 70 countries around the world. The spirits were intensely judged for this competition over twelve days through blind tastings by more than 50 respected and experienced industry professionals.
Our contemporary Raw Genever scored gold based on the jenever style, taste that lingers in the mouth, spicy finish with a hint of white pepper and the overall classic and high quality. At The Spirit Masters and the San Francisco World Spirit Competition we also succeeded in getting gold with the Raw Genever.
Hooghoudt's Raw Genever consists of 100% copper-fired malt wine and is a blend of four different types of malt wine: barley, wheat, rye and a mix of wheat, corn and rye. We are extremely proud and grateful that our innovative way of working, and crafting is recognized by this multitude of international awards. The prices are a wonderful reconfirmation of the course that we as a family distillery have been sailing for a while.
