In 1888 Grietje and hero Jan Hooghoudt had a great idea - one that brought together taste, colour and fragrance. The idea took shape in a cellar on the Oosterstraat in the centre of Groningen. The couple carefully prepared spirits and regional beverages; they quickly discovered the diverse world of Genever. It was the beginning of a long and beautiful voyage of discovery that has been going on ever since....
The company, now in the fourth generation of the family, still works with the same love and passion for new flavours and distillates as the two of them did back then. Master distiller Frank Leystra creates genever, in which tradition and modernity come together.
De Borgen's range of products is inspired by over 400 years of Dutch distillation history.
