The National Jenever Museum in Schiedam – located in a former malt wine roasting and distillery – underwent a major refurbishment.
Upon arrival visitors smell the herbs and “botanicals”, the raw materials of gin, whiskey and gin. Silhouettes of buildings from the gin industry and the skyline of GinCity Schiedam form the backdrop for the first space.
