    Borrel manneke (dram manikin)

    dram manikin

    Favorite thing: This fountain symbolizes the economical cycle of the gin industry. The pulp of the distilled grain was given to the pigs and cows. The animal's manure was used to better the grain fields. Better ground, more grain, more raw materials for the gin industry and more food for the animals.
    Once a year, during the gin festivities in October, real gin is coming out of the fountain.
