Long Description:
The National Jenever Museum Schiedam has been located since 1996 in a former malt wine distillery and distillery De Locomotive at Lange Haven 74-76 in the South Holland city of Schiedam, the city that became known as the jenever capital of the world.

The museum shows a special collection that tells about the history and background of gin and gin distillation in the Netherlands. Think of advertising, packaging material or glassware. There is usually a temporary exhibition to admire. The museum has a tasting room, not to mention the historic distillery where malt wine jenever is distilled according to the Oud-Hollandsche Method and according to a recipe from 1700. The malt wine, distilled from rye and barley malt, is aged for 3 years and then bottled under the name 'Old Schiedam'.

In 1998, the museum building served as the model for KLM's 79th Delft Blue House.
