The Story of Zuidam
Zuidam Distillers was started back in 1975 by Fred van Zuidam. The idea was to start a small distillery that only produced very exclusive products. He built a small distillery of 300 square meters with 1 small copper still and 1 small production line.
After a tough start it took Fred van Zuidam 10 years to create the reputation of being the finest distillery in the Netherlands. A major contributor to this reputation was his wife Helene van Zuidam and her work creating the packaging for the products. In 1989 Zuidam expanded their warehouse with 600 square meters and one production line.
Today, both sons Patrick and Gilbert run the distillery under the watchful eyes of their parents. With Patrick caring for the distillery and production and Gilbert looking after the customers. They run a state of the art distillery of 3600 square meters with 4 brand new copper stills, over 1000 oak barrels, 4 production lines and a modern tank storage.
Zuidam Liqueurs are made in the traditional artisanal way. All of the ingredients are selected and processed into the most beautiful products in the Zuidam family owned and run distillery. The liqueuer recipes are designed by father Fred and son Patrick van Zuidam.
After all the time and care it takes to make their products Zuidam hope you can enjoy them in the same way. Relax when you try them and take your time so you can fully enjoy their unique character.
