Extra Smeets, Extra Taste
Smeets products can be drunk neat, but can also be used to prepare surprising genever cocktails. Discover more than 60 recipes on the Smeets website.
Smeets Extra 35°
Smeets Extra is the most popular and best-selling Hasselt Grain Genever. You can recognise it by the typical green bottle with a long neck. This unique genever is created from a subtle mix of malt wine, herbs and juniper berries. The malt wine is distilled by hand and matured for 6 months on Hasselt soil. In this way, Smeets meets the conditions for bearing the ‘Hasselt Genever’ international quality mark. Smeets Extra is strongly aromatic and has a soft, rounded and recognisable grain flavour. Can be enjoyed neat, or as a basis for one of the many Smeets genever cocktails.
Smeets Hasselt 30°
This grain genever is made from pure rye and barley malt. Smeets Extra’s ‘little brother’ follows the same production process, but has a lower alcohol content. This 30° genever warms you deep inside with its subtle herbal aroma and juniper berry flavour.
Smeets Extra 40°
Smeets Extra 40 is an old Hasselt grain genever that owes its full flavour to the high content of home-distilled malt wine and the alcohol percentage of 40%. Taste it neat or as a basis for a fine genever cocktail. Smeets Extra 40 is an ode to Hasselt and its genever culture. With its perfect balance of flavour and long, intense aftertaste, Smeets Extra 40 provides the ultimate moment of enjoyment.
Smeets Whisky Cask Finish 42°
Smeets Whisky Cask Finish was extra-matured in old Glen Moray whisky barrels. This has given this aged genever a slightly yellow colour and a woody, distinctive smoky taste with hints of caramel and vanilla. A great delicacy for fans, layered and complex.
Drink it neat from a traditional whisky glass.
Smeets Rum Cask Finish 42°
Smeets Rum Cask Finish is extra-matured in old Saint James rum barrels. You can taste soft vanilla and slight hints of ripe harvest fruit. The colour is clear, even almost transparent. A sublimely balanced genever, which can rightly become a new favourite for connoisseurs.
Drink it neat or on the rocks from a rum tumbler.
Smeets Port Cask Finish 42°
Smeets Rum Cask Finish is extra-matured in old Porto Cruz port barrels. The taste is nuanced, slightly dry and fruity at the same time. You can recognise red fruits and a light touch of raisins. The port barrels give this genever a bright cherry colour with dark hues. Delicious and accessible. For real enjoyment!
Serve chilled as an aperitif or digestif.
