100% Tasting Fun.

Zuidam Distillery was founded in 1975 in the Netherlands by Fred van Zuidam. The beginnings were humble. It took them over 10 years before the business started taking off – that is after Fred's wife Helene started designing the packaging for the products. These days the distillery is run by their two sons Patrick and Gilbert, however father Fred is still involved in all recipes and mother Helene continues to do the design. The family uses local windmills for the production of malted barley, helping preserve an important Dutch heritage of the World famous windmills. 

Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky is a 100 proof, 100 months old, 100% Rye Grain, 100% Small Batch and 100% handmade Rye Whisky. A different take on Rye, indeed. We found a chocolatey feel to it, which we haven't discovered in American Rye's before.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Zuidam uses a traditional Dutch method of distilling, including using windmills to grind the grains used in its spirits.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
