Wynand Fockink information
This small tasting house (dating from 1679) serves scores of jenever and liqueurs in an arcade behind Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky. Although there are no seats or stools, it's an intimate place to knock back a shot glass or two. Guides give an English-language tour of the distillery and tastings (six samples) on weekends at 3pm, 4.30pm, 6pm and 7.30pm (€17.50, reservations not required).
If you're stuck trying to decide on a flavour, try the house speciality boswandeling (secret of the forest), a vivacious combination of young jenever, herb bitters and orange liqueur – the effect tastes like cloves.
