Taste Local!

Taste Local!

A whiskey distillery traditionally has its own tasting room. But at Bus Whisky, Taste Local also stands for enjoying local produce with farm-to-table cuisine. Bus Whisky's charming and tastefully decorated farm restaurant has a changing menu featuring almost exclusively local produce. We process produce from our own farm and food forest and also purchase from no less than twenty-two fellow local farmers, fishermen and artisan suppliers each week, which we are happy to introduce to you in our menu.

Best from the Bus surprise menu
Our changing menu consists of a tasting of a number of different small appetizers originally performed on a whiskey dough. For the main courses you can choose from meat, fish or vegan. And also the dessert again consists of all small dishes so you can taste something of everything.

two courses 29.5 | three courses 37.5 | four courses 45.5 | five courses 54.5

No set menu
We work very closely with our suppliers and put together a weekly menu based on their offerings. In this way we respond perfectly to the seasons and Mother Nature's offerings. Our chefs go to the farm themselves to choose a bull or cow to slaughter for us. We then process that "from head to butt. We try to process everything that comes from the land. In fact, we give value to products that would otherwise be unintentionally labeled as waste or byproducts by also using the skin or kernel, for example. We process everything to minimize food waste and minimize our footprint. And so our menu is based entirely on that.

Green Card
We also have a green surprise menu which is vegan, lactose and gluten-free by default, which is a similar weekly menu with a tasting of small appetizers, choice of two main courses and a tasting of desserts. All of these culinary dishes are little taste explosions. Of course, other dietary requirements and allergens are gladly taken into account upon request.

Food forest & kitchen garden
Our own food forest is a place where we largely let nature take its course. Many of our people in the service regularly lend a helping hand in the food forest and vegetable garden themselves and can therefore tell you a lot about it. How nice is it that our chefs can take a walk through the food forest in the morning and that during this walk, creativity creates new dishes that are presented in our menu the same evening? That is the ambition of our cooks and we are working hard on that.

Home brewed drinks
In addition to the house distilled whiskey, most of the other drinks on our beverage menu are also brewed and bottled on our own farm. From home-brewed beers made from our own malting barley and cider made from our own apples to home-bottled craft sodas. Not to mention the house distilled eau-de-vie and homemade liqueurs with fruit from our own food forest. We even have our own coffee roastery and tea plantation on the farm. Our farm restaurant is almost entirely self-sufficient in terms of beverages, with the exception of wines. Because although we also have a small vineyard of our own, we like to surprise you with one of the wines on our wine list, all sourced from fellow winemakers in the Netherlands as well as from Dutch winemakers 'from abroad'. Private dining for groups is possible by reservation on Wednesdays, but we are often fully booked, so you really need to book in advance. Reservations can easily be made online.

TIP 1: You must make two separate reservations for the tours and the restaurant!
