Genever has been Belgium's national spirit for over 5oo years. Quite popular in the U.S. during the 19th century, before prohibition in 1920 brought legal liquor consumption to a halt, the import of genever to the U.S. was five times greater than gin. If you were having a cocktail party in the 1800s you were shaking up genever cocktails. Legendary 19th century American barman Jerry Thomas wrote The Bar-Tender's Guide: How to Mix Drinks or The Bon-Vivant's Companion in 1862. Harry Johnson in 1882 wrote Bartender's Manual of How to Mix Drinks. Both books are classics and were the first of their kind. Both books used genever in their recipes.

"Diep9 redefines genever in the US

and sets a new standard for others to try to match. Highly Recommended" 
Spirit Review, Chris Carlsson

"Sure there are other genever brands on the market. But they pale in comparison to the luscious quality of Diep9.

I beg that you seek a bottle of Diep9. They are doing a historically correct version of our original gin"

Foodista, Warren Bobrow
