Experience the sights, smells, and flavors of the quaint historic village of Schiedam. Begin your journey with a drive to charming Schiedam, where you meet with a local guide who takes you to the "Waag," the historic weighing house. Imagine the eerie witch trials that used to take place there in the 16th century, as you view the weighing pans that now only weigh jenever berries and other goods. Listen to your guide explain fascinating details about gin with anecdotes. Walk the long historic harbor toward the National Jenever Museum, where you get a unique look at the distillery, which dates back to the 16th century, and enjoy the scents and tastes of several Schiedam's gins. After your visit, it’s high time to sit back and sip on a proper Copa Gin and Tonic with a snack.
