Amsterdam, September 2019 – This November, iconic five-star design hotel, Pulitzer Amsterdam will launch the Jenever Journey package, offering guests a quintessentially Dutch experience when it comes to sampling the traditional spirit and enjoying the Dutch city.
Thought to have first been discovered as a medicine in the 1500’s and classed as Holland’s national drink since the 1700’s, Jenever has a rich history and is still hugely popular in bars and cocktails today. A botanically-rich spirit that is also malty and full-bodied, the spirit has a unique flavour profile that is often described as being similar to gin and whisky as it incorporates both botanicals and grains. Perfect for sipping, as is traditionally done in the Netherlands, or as a base for innovative and exciting cocktails; the Dutch spirit has had a resurgence in recent times and is now being enjoyed in bars across the globe.
Designed to take guests on a journey through time, Pulitzer Amsterdam’s two-night Jenever Journey will highlight the city’s rich past whilst showcasing how the spirit can be incorporated into a more modern setting with tipples and tastings along the way.
Guests will begin their stay by checking in to one of the historic hotel’s thoughtfully-designed guestrooms or suites where they will be greeted by a Jenever-related in-room treat. Guests will then be directed by Pulitzer’s Bar’s Jenever expert to Amsterdam’s most traditional Jenever bar, De Drie Fleschjes, where they will enjoy tastings and unparalleled insight into the spirit’s history and heritage. Upon returning the to the hotel, guests can head over to the hotel’s timeless and cosy bar, Pulitzer’s Bar, and indulge in two cocktails showcasing how the spirit is used in modern bartending. The talented bar team will prepare a Martinez – a sweet blend of Jenever, vermouth, Maraschino and bitters, as well as a Hibiscus Gimlet using Kever Genever, lime cordial and hibiscus tea to allow guests to taste and see how use of the spirit has evolved.
The Jenever Journey package is based on two people sharing and is priced from €814. The package includes:
- A two-night stay at Pulitzer Amsterdam
- Visit to traditional Jenever bar, De Drie Fleschjes for a tasting (includes the tasting of two different Jenevers)
- Two Jenever cocktails in Pulitzer’s Bar
- A small bottle of Kever Genever (which can be taken to the bar where the team will create a Hibiscus Gimlet)
Not only perfect for exploring the city’s Jenever routes, Pulitzer Amsterdam is located in one of Amsterdam’s chicest neighbourhoods, with the quaint shops of the Jordaan, flower market and other attractions just a short distance away. The hotel is also within easy reach of the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum and The Anne Frank House making it the ideal base for families to explore the city with ease.
