The "De Borgen" Genever - a journey through time.Discover the diversity of Genver. The history of the Genevers goes back to the 16th century. The so-called "Corenwijn" or "Malt Genever" comes from this time. In the 17th and 18th centuries the "Old Style Genever" developed, a blend with a 17 year old malt brandy and juniper. In the 19th century, the development of new distillation processes resulted in the "New Style Genever" from which the gin emerged in England.
