One of the oldest beweries in Holland was the "De Oranjeboom" brewery in Rotterdam, established in 1671 as a continuation of the "De Dissel", which already existed in 1650. In 1968, when both breweries were the only ones remaining in their respective cities, they were merged under the name "United Dutch Breweries", centralised in Breda in the Netherlands.
The name Oranjeboom is closely connected to the history of the Netherlands. Since the 16th century, our, still ruling, Royal Family, belonged to the House of Orange and the symbol of the affinity of the Dutch people with their sovereign has always been an orange blossom or orange tree. Oranjeboom is precisely the Dutch word for orange tree.
"Oranjeboom Premium Beer" is, as has always been, a strong yet mildly bitter, pure, natural lager. It is a symbol of age-old traditions and comradeship.
