Distillery A. van Wees

Website design for the oldest craft distillery in Amsterdam

Distillery A. van Wees - De Ooievaar is the only remaining artisanal distillery in Amsterdam. Founded in 1883, the products are distilled following traditional Dutch recipes.

Approach
The previous website of the distillery was built in the early years of the internet and was due for a complete overhaul. While designing the new website we considered every little detail, which is why we chose Kurversburg as the main typeface. This typeface is based on letters found on old bridges in Amsterdam.

Authentic
Studio Lake created a series of photographs to compliment the design. The result is a truly authentic website, which will take you on a journey through the distillery and her products. No sterile, white backgrounds - but a clear yet characteristic design. A true representation of this artisanal craft distillery.
