First developed as massive wine cooperative, this became the regulating force in the South African Wine industry. 
But while wine is not a big Dutch export, the Netherlands is known for gin. Jenever (Genever in Belgium), the name derived from juniper, which is the main botanical ingredient, was first produced in the 16th century. Chemist Sylvius de Bouve is attributed as the first to distill malt wine and add juniper to mask Read more »

  • Chocovine Chocolate & Wine Product of Holland


    Smells like a wine, but tastes like a liquor instead. Deceives you into thinking it will be a very sweet wine because of the chocolate, but actually is very bitter. Decent, but can't drink more than 1 glass without feeling slightly nauseous. Read More

  • Chocovine Chocolate & Wine Product of Holland


    Most liquors (especially dairy liquors) have artificial additives. For some reason this producer is more honest than others. Remove the "artificial flavor" on the lable and this liquor will sell like hot khakis :) Read More
