The Stillery – “The Originl Craft Spirit” The Stillery is a young dynamic craft distillery located in Amsterdam’s harbour area. It is there where organic craft spirits are created as they were once made by pioneers of the past. The Stillery is the first distillery in a long time within the Netherlands to reignite the old ways of craft-distilling. Where other distilleries use bought alcohol from big alcohol plants, The Stillery makes its own alcohol from actual malted grain. This start to finish approach is within the spirits business often referred to as “from grain to glass” and is implemented for all spirits within The Stillery’s Portfolio. Making the alcohol completely in-house. Gives The Stillery a right to claim they craft spirits as they were once made, hence “The Original Craft Spirit”.

A deliciously appetising liquid of unquestionable quality, each sip of Don Papa Rum transports you to the mystical world of Sugarlandia – an odd but very marvellous place where senses are heightened and everything is not as it seems. A premium aged, single-island rum from the Philippines, Don Papa is crafted on the fertile foothills of the active volcano Mt. Kanlaon – where the finest blades of sugarcane are expertly milled to produce sweet, rich molasses. After harvest, fermentation, and distillation, Don Papa Rum is blended to perfection by our Master Blender before coming together in an alchemy of magic in a bottle. www.donpaparum.com
Rutte has a long history; recipes have been passed on from generation to generation. Whereas the industry was looking for cheaper methods and materials during the last century, this ‘innovation’ completely passed by the Rutte family. And that’s a good thing because it means old recipes and craftsmanship have been preserved. Even though the distillery has not been in the hands of the Rutte family since the 1990s, the tradition is kept alive and the company stills follows the same unique distilling process as ancestor Simon did in his days. www.rutte.com
