The Nolet tour

See, experience and discover

Visit our Distillery

A visit to Nolet family Distillery in Schiedam is the best way to experience our tradition. Our reception area is in the 'De Nolet' tower mill, the tallest windmill in the world. Our enthusiastic guides and an inspiring video will introduce you to the family history, starting as far back as 1691. This is a special tale and it resonates on through the family museum and former board offices.

Distillery Schiedam

In our distillery, you’ll come face to face with the coal-fired copper pot still number 1, fully operational to this day. You will see, experience and discover the distillation process and you’ll have a chance to see the modern technology of the bottling plant, the cask attic and the Logistics Centre from where our global operations are managed. We look forward to welcoming you!

Tasted and approved

flavour and quality, derived from our generations of expertise

For 325 years now, the Nolet family has been testing and monitoring the flavour and quality of everything that leaves the Nolet Distillery: Ketel One Vodka, KETEL1 Jenever and NOLET’S Gin. For eleven generations, we have successfully been combining aged traditions and modern techniques so as to guarantee the flavour and quality of every bottle. The nine forefathers of the current generations passed on the secret family recipes from father to son. Every Nolet has been noting down new ideas and findings in journals. These journals, containing the recipes, are kept in a safe and only one Nolet per generation has held the key to that safe. A member of the family still approves each spirit run for the flavour and quality, derived from our generations of expertise.
