Tasting Through France with BCI: Episode 2, Genever

 

 

In the second edition of our Tasting Through France Series, we explored the BCI umbrella of brands outside of France and virtually traveled to the Boomsma Distillery in the Netherlands. The Boomsma Distillery was created in 1883 by Dirk Boomsma and is still today, a 100% family-owned business.

Chantoine Boomsma, the 5th generation owner, is leading the company and continues to cherish the family values and traditions through their production of Dutch Genevers and herbal bitters in the province of Friesland in the Netherlands.

Chantoine was joined for the mixology lesson by master bartender Francois Morisson, Strategic Accounts VP at BCI.
