Nosing Gin and Liqueurs

Odorama: Thursday 9th of June, 20:30

We know the process of distilling for making alcoholic drinks such as spirits and brandy. But distilling is also the process that you use for making perfumes. Fenny van Wees, from Amsterdam Distillery De Ooievaar, distills liquors like a perfumer. Tonight she will teach us how to smell with our mouth and explain why some things are better nosed than tasted.

The evening will include in dept information about the distilling of gin, jenever and liqueurs as well as a smell-frenzy of many different distillates.
