This website is dedicated to Simon Rijnbende who, in 1793, at the age of 16 years, started a distillery at Schiedam.
Somtimes people ask me: "The Rynbende company does not exist anymore. So why taking the trouble building a website?"
Well... My name is Wouter Rijnbende. And, seeing my lastname, there is the relation to this Simon Rijnbende.
When I was a litte boy, my parents took me on holiday to Belgium. There I found a three edged bottle that held my own lastname: Rynbende. It was the beginning of my search wanting to find everything there is to know about the company that one of my ancestors founded, and preserving all this information for our future, sharing it with you.
Please take a closer look in the world of Rynbende, see how it all started and what collectibles have been issued during the years.
