Step inside to taste Widow Joustra’s Beerenburg or go on a guided tour of the distillery. Tsjoch! (Cheers!)
Taste the nostalgic atmosphere and Beerenburg in Widow Joustra’s store and tasting room.
The story of Widow Joustra starts in 1864 when Anjenette Joustra began making Beerenburg after her husband’s death. She used a mixture of spices and a recipe handed down by Hendrik Beerenburg, who used to be a spice wholesaler in the 17th century. She let the spices soak in Dutch gin for four weeks.
The result was Weduwe Joustra Beerenburg, which is now a popular drink among Frisians. The shop in which you can buy Beerenburg still has the nostalgic atmosphere of yesteryear.
