About
Kampen was formerly known for her cigars. In the Voorstraat were several factories, including De Olifant. Nowadays De Olifant can still be found on this location, the only remaining cigar factory. De Olifant combines craftsmanship with modern techniques and produces cigars for several countries. Would you like to see our factory? That's possible!

Have a Smoke

So we would like to visit a cigar shop in Amsterdam because we happened to be there. Difficulties arose so we decided to go to cigar factory De Olifant in Kampen on our way home. As always we arrived late.

"No problem, let's hook you guys up to the group doing the tour". We did hook up and had a mighty good time. The factory is very small and has an intense atmosphere. Because it was a weekday the creating business was at full bloom and almost lured you to participate in the process. Eyes, ears and noses needed all attention they could muster.

Afterwards we were first invited to a tongue blistering beautiful coffee and a bit later we were offered a good glass of wine accompanied with the first cigar in my life (some 58 years to date).

Sitting outdoors in the street with a glass of wine in one hand, a very friendly cigar in the other and my dear puffing happily away beside me, I was the King of the World for half an hour. The only thing missing was a Dalmore Cigar Malt, which I found out later was better company to the smoke than a glass of wine.

A couple of days ago (a few months later) I returned for a box of smokes on the way home from work and instantly felt at home once more. I just had a Fist Banging on the Table Coffee because the car driving going on and all. I think a cigar needs a friend or two to share, so I waited this one out until I got home.

Next we will bring dear friends along to share the experience. Still need to think over the whisky connection though...

Interesting tour

Even if u do not smoke cigars, this is a must see place in Kampen. It's a shop with the factory behind it that still produces a impressive amount of cigars. Some are hand rolled, others are made by human operated machines. They learn u a lot about tobacco leaves and they have a smoke room where u can smoke your cigars.
