We were handed the information leaflet in English, which was great, however, found it quite difficult to tie up to the exhibitions at times, so kind of lost interest in trying to figure out what did what and actually just read the leaflet. It was...More

I went here not knowing much about Jenever. I enjoyed the museum and learned a lot about something that is apparently quite important in Belgium. The museum is set up in several languages, which was nice. You also get to try jenever at the end...More

That indeed is the question...I discovered it's quite an experience after my visit here. It comes in different full bodied flavours .Tastes good on its own or as a cocktail mix. Savour it!
