In Schiedam, you can smell, taste, and see the characteristics of a distillers’ city. In the historic centre, many buildings and the seven tallest windmills in the world still remind us of the time when Schiedam used to be the international heart of the gin industry.
Today, the district is flourishing. Old distilleries have been transformed into shops, restaurants and apartments. Visitors can explore the windmills and get a taste of history in the jenever museum. In addition to this, one can meet the distillers and master blenders who keep the traditions of Schiedam gin alive.
