New genever from ancient grain ‘Emer’


A new graangenever has seen the light: Miracle of Amsterdam. What makes this product so special that you must taste it?

Ms. van Wees: “Grain genevers were traditionally made of wheat, rye and barley. In 2013 Slow Food asked me if I was interested in distilling with an ancient grain: emer. In a distant past beer has been brewed from this grain, but it was never used for genever. All the reason for me to take the challenge.’

The result is a brand new grain genever, distilled using traditional methods: Mirakel van Amsterdam (Miracle of Amsterdam).
