Proeflokaal de Ooievaar

Top choice distillery

in Medieval Centre & Red Light District

Not much bigger than a vat of jenever (Dutch gin), this magnificent little tasting house has been going strong since 1782. On offer are 14 jenevers and liqueurs (such as Bride's Tears with gold and silver leaf) from the De Ooievaar distillery, still located in the Jordaan. Despite appearances, the house has not subsided but was built leaning over.
