Snuff and Spices windmills „De Ster and De Lelie”

The windmills together with the former residence of their first owners, the family Hioolen (now restaurant) and the former “karotten” factory are the last remains of the once blooming snuff industry in Rotterdam. Our foundation has revived the old production methods and produces historical snuffs according to original recipes. Spices are ground (when there is enough wind) on the two 2500 kg weighing mill stones. You are welcome to smell the flavours, sample the snuffs and hear the stories about the mills and the production.
