Other Plantinga Products

The products on this page have not been available at least since the mid 1980s, some a lot longer.

 

 

Four pretty good quality jugs (in Dutch a "greskruik"), all found after the van der Feer family bought the former Plantinga shop at Dijkstraat 7 in (or just before) 1990. Left to right: Voorburg (a sweet kind of liqueur for ladies), Frambozen Brandewijn (Raspberry Brandy), Zuivere Brandewijn (pure Brandy) and Cognac (the original French brandy). The contents of these jugs use the old-fashioned "kan" ("jug") unit. This old measure (originally roughly 1,4 to 2 litres) was equalled to 1 litre in 1820 and officially abandoned in 1869. The Voorburg and Frambozen Brandewijn are 2 kan, the Zuivere Brandewijn 3 kan. Pictures made possible by the van der Feer family.

Front and back of a rather more elaborate jug, not just with some labels plastered on. These were also found by the van der Feer family. Pictures made possible by the van der Feer family.

Another jug, this one found in the former Plantinga distillery at Grootzand 6. It is the biggest of the ones pictured here. Picture made possible by the van der Weide family.

Plantinga "Blanke Anijs". The label on this bottle is of the type that was basically used all over the board for different spirits, also used on the rightmost jug on the very top of this page. Many of this type of labels can be seen on bottles in the shop interior picture in the first picture in this gallery. We can therefore conclude that this type of label was used around the early 1920s. Picture made possible by Gelkje Schotanus.

Zeer Oude Jenever = Very Old Gin. Bottle from the 1940s. Picture made possible by Gelkje Schotanus.

Jenever (gin) from the olden days. Somewhere between 1921 and 1935 the distillery became "1st Class" so it's from after when that happened. Pictures by Bastiaan Plantinga.
