Proeflokaal (tasting room) Wynand Fockink
Jenever from Wynand Fockink
Wynand Fockink is more than just a tasting room: you can also take group tours to see the distillery, participate in tastings, and even take a workshop to learn how to distill your own jenever. You will learn everything there is to know about the distilling process, including the various flavors that are used in producing traditional Dutch liqueurs such as Volmaakt Geluk, Bruidstranen and Hansje in de Kelder.
What’s the best way to drink jenever?
Jenever is a typically Dutch product, and the Wynand Fockink tasting room has elevated drinking jenever to a truly unique experience. Here is your first lesson in drinking jenever: The glass is filled nearly to overflowing, creating a “head” on top. Next, put your hands on your back, and lean over towards to the glass to slurp the head off the top. It is considered a sin to lift the glass and then (inevitably) spill your jenever. Consider yourself warned!
