Over het festival

Ooit, lang geleden, werd in Nederland voor het eerst jenever gemaakt. Oorspronkelijk dronk men het als geneesmiddel, maar al snel werd er volop genoten van dit fijne drankje. Later namen de Engelsen dit van ons over, door ook te gaan distilleren met jeneverbessen. Zij gebruikten alleen neutrale alcohol, terwijl jenever van moutwijn wordt gemaakt. Zo ontstond gin. Gin kennen we allemaal en het goede nieuws is dat ook jenever met een wereldwijde comeback bezig is. Onze nationale drank is inmiddels bijna 400 jaar oud. Ooit de meest gedronken drank ter wereld, nu een openbaring voor de liefhebber.
