Wilhelmina Pepermunt: Peppermint With A Royal Touch
Wilhelmina Pepermunt: A Royal Freshness
For over 120 years Wilhemina Pepermunt (Wilhemina Peppemint) has been produced by Fortuin, a sugar confectionery company based in Dockum. Fortuin was founded in 1842 by Willem Hendrik Fortuin when he established a patisserie in Lemmer. Soon thereafter the company expanded and moved to Dokkum where the company is still based today. Over the years, Fortuin was developed from patisserie to an industrial sugar confectionery company in 1888. In 1892, to commemorate Fortuin company’s 50th anniversary and as homage to the then 12 year old Princess Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, on each side of the peppermint a portrait of the Princess was featured. The first box of Wilhelmina Peppermints was offered to the Royal family. The peppermints were an instant hit with the Royal family and as reward the company received the Royal Warrant in 1896. To this day, Fortuin still holds the Royal Warrant and the Wilhelmina Peppermints still offers a royal fresh sensation.
