What’s the best way to take a little piece of Amsterdam home with you? Travel correspondent Alyssa Caverley’s Savvy Souvenirs report takes you beyond the obvious tulip bulbs and wooden clogs and let’s you in on an authentic piece of Dutch culture—Jenever or gin.
Jenever is all over the Netherlands. For the best experience, go for a taste of history. You can sample the drink at the Jenever Museum just outside Rotterdam, then visit an Amsterdam bar that has been selling hand-crafted liqueurs and Jenevers since 1679.
