Zuidam Distillers was started back in 1975 by Fred van Zuidam. The idea was to start a small distillery that only produced very exclusive products. He built a small distillery of 300 square meters with 1 small copper still and 1 small production line. After struggling in the beginning it took Fred van Zuidam over 10 years to create the reputation of being the finest distillery in the Netherlands. But it was only after his wife Helene van Zuidam started creating the packaging for the products of the distillery that business really took off. These days both sons Patrick and Gilbert run the distillery under the watchful eyes of their parents. With Patrick caring for the distillery and production and Gilbert looking after the customers they run a state of the art distillery of 3600 square meters with 4 brand new copper stills over 1000 oak barrels 4 production lines and a modern tank storage. However in all these years and multiple expansions the aim of the distillery has never changed - to please customers and produce the best products possible.
Initial lemon followed by pine and distinctive juniper on the nose with notes of oak coming through. The palate opens with honeyed sweetness, followed by lemon and hints of lemon. A long and dry finish with perfect botanical balance.
