Thanks for your reply.
They 'treated' you on 'Jenever' or Dutch Gin.
'Sauce' in Dutch 'Saus' or 'Jus' that's more something like 'Gravy'
We have Jenever in many variations like 'Oude (=Old) Jenever' - 'Jonge
(=Young) Jenever' - 'Korenwijn or Koren Jenever' Koren= Corn.
They all taste more or less different. And it's a favorite of elderly
people, Ooops, I think I'm elderly myself ;-}
My late Granddad made it himself.
Jenever certainly is not my favorite, I prefer an Old Scottish Malt Whisky
or a 'Beerenburg' or 'Schelvispekel' also a traditional Dutch alcoholic
