Holland’s Rutte Distillery, one of the smallest distilleries in Europe, is famous for its boutique gins, genevers and li-queurs. The company was established in the historic port city of Dordrecht in 1872 by Simon Rutte. Simon use to produce his own distillations, infused with exotic spices and fruits from the Dutch East Indies. His products became so popular that he converted the family café into a liquor store.
Not much has changed in 144 years; Rutte continue to produce small batches of premium handcrafted gins and genevers in the same backroom where Simon created the original spirits. They are committed to quality and tradition, their artisanal spirits 100% natural and free of any artificial flavourings, using fruits, botanicals and nuts sourced from only the finest producers. The recipes, handed down through seven Rutte generations, are closely guarded but have been refined and tailored for today’s market.
" I get to use the well-kept knowledge gathered by generations of craftsmanship by the Rutte family and use it every day to distill the beautiful spirits available to you today. That’s not just a job; that’s a big smile on my face, every day!"
-Myriam Hendrickx, Head Distiller

MOUNT EDEN SPIRITS CLUB | A GLOBAL GIN TOUR
Dating back to the middle ages, Gins humble origins were a form of herbal medicine. Over the centuries, this has evolved into one of the largest spirit categories globally. With what seems to be an ever growing list of ingredients and maturation methods, Gin has become one of the most diverse and popular spirits in style. To fully grasp this diversity, we will taste a range of London Dry styles from across Europe, New Zealand and Australia, while having a little fun exploring various mixing options from East Imperial. Tastings will be in a specially designed Gin glass from Riedel, which you can take home afterwards.
