Bottles, glasses, posters
and of course the distillery
give a colourful overview of 
the many manifestations of jenever.

A fully operational19th century distillery, 2.150 glass bottles, 750 jugs and pitchers made of stone, more than 1.230 jenever glasses and 400 liqueur glasses, 200 ceramic objects, 540 posters, 380 placards and approximately 9.500 bottle labels... That sums up the Jenevermuseum's collection. The 19th century distillery equipment, originally from distillery H. Servais (Géromont-Malmédy) and bought by the museum in 1981, is the beating heart of the museum and its jenever production.

What's on display at the museum, is merely a tip of the iceberg, however. The collection's inventory, management and research is constantly improved. The collection guide [available in Dutch] provides an overview of the subcollections and the future projects aimed at improving the collection's management and research.
