The Bokma history starts at the source- also literally, since the Dutch word for 'source' is 'bron'. De Bron is the name that Freerk Klaaseszoon Bokma gave to his distillery. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Klaas Bokkeszoon, who operated a public house dating from 1826 in addition to his own grain mill. He thus laid the foundation for a rich and long family tradition. At present, Piet Bokma, a fifth generation member of this truly Frisian family of genever producers, guarantees the familiar high quality of young and old Bokma - a heritage to be proud of. Each generation made its contribution and allowed Bokma to become an authority on genever - stubborn, but with respect for tradition.
