The two traditional Dutch windmills that overlook the Rotterdam Kralingse Plas are not simply a reminder of past times. The Star and the Lily are the Netherlands’ only snuff tobacco and spices windmills still in operation. The Kralingse Snuff & Spices Company is working hard to keep this heritage alive. “The windmills are exceptional in their composition, and our process to produce snuff is unique – probably in the world,” says miller Jaap Bes, part of the Kralingse Snuff & Spices Company.
