Johnnie Walker logo

Johnnie Walker

The story begins with the man that gave his name to our whisky.

Since early centuries, the trouble was that the whiskies that were made, weren’t always that consistent. For one young man named John Walker – the proprietor of a grocer’s in Kilmarnock – this wasn’t good enough. He wanted his customers to enjoy the same quality and flavour time after time after time. So he began to blend them together until he produced a whisky he was happy to put his name to. Explore the big, bold flavours of Johnnie Walker with our serves and whisky cocktails for every occasion and every taste.

Join us at the Johnnie Walker Experience and learn everything there is to know about whisky!

Magioni

Imagine this… A life where you don’t have to choose between delicious and healthy. Between that what is wise and that what you most desire.

Mister Makan

With the best ingredients, their self-built set-ups and the family recipes from nenek (Indonesian for grandma) in mind, they believe that good food doesn’t have to be fancy, complicated, or expensive. Mister Makan‘s chefs traveled through Indonesia for months to gain culinary inspiration and taste all possible saté and streetfood. Once at home, with the rich flavors, scents and intense colors fresh in their memory, they developed Mister Makan’s now famous saté: marinated for hours according to a secret recipe and then grilled to perfection.

By the way, they bring more to the festivals than a saté: the tastiest chicken sandwiches, delicious vega(n) dishes, and a decent gado gado. But their saté, that is the reason why they earned a spot at Taste of Amsterdam.

MOJ Lemonade

At MOJ they have been asking themselves for many years, why do sodas contain so many additives and sugar? Therefore, they wanted to do things differently.

They spent day and night working on their secret recipe for the best soda, and here it is! MOJ’s secret recipe: 100% real fruit, fresh spring water, carbon dioxide and just a little bit of natural cane sugar. Nothing more, nothing less! They keep things natural. MOJ is available in two different flavours, which you can drink straight up or in your favourite mixed drink. Taste nature, enjoy MOJ!

Without rushing. But with all the attention for that one glass in your hand. V2C Dutch Dry Gin is distilled according to Dutch tradition, but in a limited edition.
