Lang, heel lang geleden, toen de straten nog gehuld gingen in de dikke dampen van de steeds meer oprukkende industrialisatie, bloeide er in het oude Haagsche centrum een fabriek van jenevers, bitterextracten en likeuren. Van Kleef stoomdistilleerderij 1ste klasse, opgericht door Lamberthus Theodorus Van Kleef, is gevestigd aan de Lange Beestenmarkt, in het oude Centrum van Den Haag. Een grote verscheidenheid aan dranken werd er gestookt welke in de aangrenzende slijterij werden verkocht. In 1986 sloot van Kleef als laatste Haagse distilleerderij haar deuren om, na een grondige restauratie, in 1995 te heropenen. Bezoek Van Kleef en proef hoe kwaliteit, ambacht en historie tezamen komen in al onze distillaten. U kunt uw bezoek ook combineren met een arrangement, waarbij ook een proeverij van de verschillende Van Kleef likeuren en jenevers niet ontbreekt. Wilt u echt uitpakken, behoort een culinaire omlijsting van uw bezoek ook tot de mogelijkheden.

As a visit to the Netherlands is not complete without some tasting of Dutch gin (“jenever”), we went to the only remaining distillery in The Hague, Van Kleef & Zoon, which has been producing gins and liqueurs since 1842. It is possible to take a...More

Best place to combine good alcohol with the history. Van Kleef is one of the symbols of The Hague, and you can bring it home in the bottle ;-)

This place is gem of older times. It's museum but make no mistake, it still work as a distillery and bar. Very cozy and authentic. You can try the assorted liqueurs and the local Jenever. A recommended visit in The Hague.
