True Tales Story & Tasting experience

You know by now Goeie Mie is the most prolific poison-mixer in the world, but what was arsenic actually used for? Why was Jenever first patented as a cure for stomach ache? Was Mata Hari actually innocent? And what is so special about Batavia Rum?

In our 1-hour True Tales Tasting, we’ll take you through the amazing histories of our spirits and their sources of inspiration, and make your history-lesson fun with a slightly poisonous or two-faced cocktail to enjoy. That is, if you dare to have a drink with MIE and don’t mind spilling your secrets..

The tasting is included in our distilling-class.

2.5 hours · €60 pp ·  includes the tasting ·  bring home your 350ML bottle ·  Dutch or English slots

Distill your own tale: turn your story into your personal spirit

Have you always been curious about distilling and flavors, and do you dream of creating your own special gin or vodka?

In this 2.5-hour workshop, you’ll learn everything there is to know about distilling, flavors, and history. We’ll start with a spirits tasting for inspiration and then work on your personal recipe.

By the end of the workshop, your bottle will be ready to take home and enjoy. This workshop is done in pairs, so find someone who shares your flavor!
