As soon as you enter our building, you’ll smell the smells of yore. This is a place untouched by time. Our building, housing our distillery and shop, is still in its original state. We will first welcome you in our historic Tasting Room, which was once Simon Rutte’s living room. Five generations of distillers lived and worked here. It’s clear to see, It’s clear to smell, and it’s clear to taste.
Rutte’s history is rich in anecdotes and fun facts, and we’ll gladly introduce you to this remarkable past. We explain how we make our special products and which fruits, spices and herbs we use. Of course, we’ll also show you the stills in our distillery, as well as taking you to the aging room, where our drinks lie in oak barrels until they have reached full maturity.
The Tasting room can be booked for groups on appointment on all days of the week, both during the day and in the evening. For tastings, there is a minimum group size of 14 people. For workshops, the minimum group size is 8 people. You can make a booking by submitting our contact form or calling us on +31(0)78 613 34 67.
