‪Nice discovery of ‘jenever’ history. A pity that you could not really follow the brewing process. Very strict on corona measures.
At the end a nice reward for the adults. ‬

‪For Liquor Fans‬

‪An original distillery which became a museum. A nice experience with explanations about the process, also given in English (written). You will benefit the most from a guided tour, only available for groups. We were just a couple and soon enough got bored from the technical explanation. In the end of the "tour" we were directed to a bar where we could taste one of the many sorts of Genever (!) for fee, exploring some more with a few more shots (paid) ending the visit with some souvenirs. Luckily, the bartenders were VERY friendly and the lady even took us outside to show us the plant which the gin is based on, giving also a historical overview - this made the whole visit enjoyable and interesting :)‬

‪The process and history behind "jenever"‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪This is a pretty good museum detailing not only the process of making "jenever" a sort of gin, but also details its history, the ingredients used and the publicity made for it. The museum is housed in an old distillery, and some rooms have been reconstructed to help understand the processing of "mout". Although I do not drink, I enjoyed the visit.‬

‪Good afternoon out, taking in the interesting history‬
אפר׳ 2019
‪I visited this place during a public holiday just for a view around.

I was given a book and had to match the translations, which is cheaper for them to print multiple copies of the translations on paper to hand out than print it once on plastic and attach to the exhibit, but the game of trying to match the paper-based translation to the exhibit soon grew tiresome, especially when there's no clear key to match them up and you've just got to manually cross-reference the exhibit titles to what's in the book. (would it have hurt them just to provide some numbering system or colour coding to help?)

Nonetheless I found this quite an educational trip, from the preserved equipment (with steps and ladders allowing close-up examination) with information about the actual fermentation and quality control process, through to the use of machinery to automate production (and reduce costs) as well as product marketing and distribution, including how production was affected from external influence (laws, weather, society, cultural habits, etc).

There's a certain amount of interactivity: a few buttons to press to illuminate specific topics or hear recorded playbacks, plus one or two games to play.
Some of the video explanations of the workings were good and detailed, although their placement isn't great - it's difficult viewing some when there's dazzling reflections from bright spotlights overhead. Similarly, some other videos were simply subtitled in different languages so didn't make sense listening in.

The cost of the exhibition included a drink at the end and there's a sample room in which different flavours can be smelling bottles. However, once you get to the bar it seems not all those flavours are included in the visit - there's only a choice of 5 for the tour drink.

I enjoyed it as a bit of an eye-opener into gin production and history of how trade and culture changed over the years, including some good examples of leadership and commerce in a land that struggled with exports yet thrived despite the hardships. It's important to note that it's not just the production itself and how the process evolved though feats of engineering, but also how the product brought prosperity to the region and how much of an industry grew up around it, shaping and affecting the lives of those living around the region.

A worthwhile visit, but felt they could have catered for foreign speakers better.‬

‪Fascinating and worth a visit‬
חברים • מרץ 2019
‪Nicely laid out and easy to follow, the museum leads you through the old distillery and shows off the implements used, the advertising through the ages and the history of the Jenever.
There are plenty of interactive exhibits which is good, and the artefacts are all authentic. Not brilliant if you don’t speak Flemish, but there are videos that you can listen to in other languages.
At the end, there is an excellent display of botanicals in their raw form along with the distilled version which are in smelling bottles. Then this leads you to the bar where you have a sample of the Jenever inclusive of the ticket price.
Good little museum, friendly staff.‬

‪Amazing. Home to the greatest Belgian collection. Beutiful artworks and historical pieces make up for an in depth exploration of Genevers trail around the globe and what it meant for the Low lands historic and economic environment.‬
