  1. I’m happy Bols Genever is back but it’s too bad they didn’t bring it back at a lower price point. $35 for a 750ml bottle of an unaged spirit largely obtained from grain? Come on. For example, I can get a 1.75 liter bottle of Buffalo Trace bourbon for that price and it sure takes a heck of lot more time, skill, and money for a distillery to make something like that.
