Analogue & Digital
Gin! Its an old favourite. The starting point for many lip-smacking cocktails, gin & tonics and wonderful evenings!
With its roots being traced back as far as the 14th Century, the reputation that gin has had varies from century to century, going from medicinal to anarchic, from craze to bust, but in each decade Gin has always found its place in our society.
Today, we are able to offer you both an analogue and digital gin tasting experience! We are social animals and need social interaction, so at Driftwood we are excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to join our digital distillery tasting experience. It is interactive. There are public event opportunities for you to join and our Digital Distillery Tasting box comes with everything that you need for an evening of gin enjoyment so will also make a perfect gift.

What our visitors say
The Gin tasting experience was one of our highlights during our trip to the Netherlands. Lovely event with a super friendly host. It was really fun to hear all those stories and details and the Gin was really good!Maximilian – Airbnb Guest – Sept 2020
When Hannah was explaining about her process you can really see the passion she has to create a quality product which I believe she deliveries on. Would high recommend the gin and if you can attend a gin tasting event then this would be a must also!Katrina – Google review – Sept 2020
Had a lovely tasting experience at Driftwood Distillery. Hannah was an excellent hostess and we really enjoyed hearing the stories behind each of their gins and learning about the gin-making process. The gins were lovely too. Highly recommended!Klara – Google Review – August 2020

The magic of gin!
As our guests have found out, we promise you an unforgettable experience, filled with fun and Dutch gezelligheid. When you gather around in our boutique distillery or join us online, your will learn the stories behind our craft gins, their quirky names and our background that took us to seeing up Driftwood Distillery in 2017.
We will show you our crafting process, share with you our expertise, as well as give you an opportunity to savour the artisanal gin in a cosy setting that helps you to leave the world outside just for a while.
As a group of friends or family celebrating birthdays, a special event or just searching for interesting activities to do around Katwijk or Leiden, why not include a gin tasting?
Each tasting experience lasts about 45 minutes. My distillery is small and bijou, so its like walking into someones home…. but with a bar and a still! What I cover in the tasting is how I set up the distillery, how I make gin and then we will taste each of the four gins and I will make you a gin and tonic of your favourite one. I encourage you to be inquisitive, to be curious and ask questions.
The tasting experiences are always run in small groups so we can take our time and explore. It also means that no two tastings are the same! Then of course, you will have the opportunity to buy a bottle or a gift for a gin lover!
For a visit that of 10 or more people or if you just want to visit the onsite shop, please get in touch with us here.
2020 is the year of the online event! COVID19 has taught us that we can adapt and this sociable Driftwood Digital tasting experience is a perfect example of that! Its a COVID compliant, digital lock in!
