Van Toor Distillery

The Netherlands

"The bridal tears in this liqueur used to be sad. Today they're tears of joy..."

Van Toor distillery is a small classic distillery, located in the city of Vlaardingen and established in 1883. It is well known for it’s traditional spirits like Boerenjongens, Bruidstranen, Advocaat, Kandeel and Schelvispekel, a fisherman’s drink, that would become the mainstay of the business to this day.

Owner Leo Fontijne is one of the few distillers who are still working in the old-fashioned way and on top of that tries to get the Dutch liquor dealers to sell the traditional products. A great initiative, go Leo!
