Distillery Rutte

Rutte has been distilling jenevers and liqueurs since 1872. This is still done in the same way today, 'with a passion for craft'. No flavoring or coloring agents are used. All the flavor and color comes from fresh fruit, herbs and nuts. Visit the distillery and choose a tasting or workshop!

It's climbing fun for all ages. You can start climbing from the age of 6 and a minimum height of 1.20m. The forest is divided into junior and regular forest.
