Come in, taste and learn about our typical Frisian drink!

The Boomsma Museum, is situated in the heart Leeuwarden. A traditional distillery, completely refitted in nineteen thirties style. An interactive film shows the origins of Boomsma Beerenburger and how it’s made. Besides an old pot still, a filling machine and a fragrance carousel there are plenty of interesting things exhibited which were used for making spirits. Beerenburger and other spirits can be purchased in the shop at front the distillery.
In the cozy tasting room behind the distillery you can enjoy a cup of coffee and taste the Boomsma assortment. Besides the famous Beerenburger you can also taste for example the Boomsma Dry Gin, a variety of Real Old Genever or Boomsma’s Wild Blackberries. The tasting room can accommodate groups of up 40 people and is also available for hire for special occasions. Ask for various possibilities, including catering.
