VAN TOOR DISTILLERY

Distillery
Founded in 1883
Van Toor distillery is a quaint, classic distillery, located in the city of Vlaardingen. Its history goes back to 1883 when Hendrik van Toor founded a pub in a stunning building on the Market Vlaardingen. Four generations of Toor’s later the family’s distillery was born.

Van Toor is well known for it’s traditional Spirits like Boerenjongens, Bruidstranen, Advocaat, Kandeel and Schelvispekel, which is a fisherman’s drink, that would eventually become the cornerstone of the business to this day.

Owned by Leo Fontijne, the Van Toor distillery is one of the few distillers using traditional, old-fashioned methods.
