About us

ODB Beverages

Our history started in 1658, when Roucher & Co was founded in the city of Leiden. The ODB Group evolved from wine merchants and a master-distiller who made genever.

The Distillery was renamed in 1710, and continues to operate today under the name Onder de Boompjes Distillery. At Onder de Boompjes distillery, we produce spirits such as genever, gin and whisky in a traditional style, in the same way it was done centuries ago. In May 2019, we took over the bottling and packaging company Packfill BV and renamed it ODB Beverages. The takeover marked an expansion of our business, and we are now able to help new and existing customers from all over the world with the bottling, development or redevelopment of their products. Our company is located in Zwaag, the Netherlands. The distillery is located in Schiedam, the Netherlands, a city known for its rich distilling history.

Raucher & Co

It all started in 1658, but the Raucher family documents only date back to 1704. The archives of the city of Leiden only mention the existence of a distillery at 10 Nieuwstraat, but it is still unknown today who was running it.

Bakker family

In 1920, the Bakker family, who were barley and juniper berry traders at the time, bought the distillery from Mr. van Unen, who was one of their customers. The Bakker family ran the company until 1971, although unfortunately the liquor store was closed. When we bought the distillery, Mr Bakker’s daughters passed on their original recipe book to us, which was written in 1780.
