It is the first long documentary filmed by Gwen Jansen (40). She was a succesful entrepreneur in the automotive branche. Three years ago she sold her companies, which made it possible for her to focus on her biggest passion, namely making films. She launched the website www.nederlandwhiskyland.nl and started a crowdfund campaign in order to gather the required capital to make films without subsidies. Many private investors decided to participate, and especially with the support of Scotch Whisky International and Maxxium Nederland/World of Whisky, she managed to put the required capital on the table. There was also support from other organisations, such as Moët Hennessy Nederland, De Monnik Dranken, Infinity Nederland, VKV Groep, De Lunterse Boer, Intercaves en WhiskyPassion. All parties signed an agreemeent that kept Gwen Jansen in charge of the content of the movie. Jansen also instituted a Board of Advisory with independent experts from the whiskeyworld to ensure full independency of the film.
Whiskytips is proud to be a member of the Board.
