We Are Drifters

We have drifted most of our lives, from country to country for work and for pleasure, always seeking out a new experience, adventure or challenge. We are naturally curious, scientific problem solvers. We don’t sit still, we keep moving. We have landed in a beautiful small town by the seaside in the Netherlands. Our wanderlust may be quenched for now, but our need for adventure has not!

Driftwood Distillery; the coming together of years of experiences to create something special which would not have been possible without the journey; this is our passion and we hope your new experience!
