For all people who enjoy a cocktail every once in a while (or more often), we kindly recommend to visit House of Bols. Here you can enjoy the Cocktail and Genever Experience. It takes you on a spectacular journey through different flavours, aromas, photo’s, sounds, and movies. During the tour you will visit the Hall of Taste where you can discover all 42 flavours of liqueur. The tour ends in the Mirror Bar where one of the bartenders will mix your favourite cocktail. And if you have always wanted to pretend to be able to flair bartend, just like Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail, you can use the specially designed Bols flair bottles!
The Bols family started production in 1575 in a small distillery in Amsterdam. Their first liqueurs came in three different flavours: cumin, cardamom, and orange. It wasn’t until almost a hundred years later, in 1664, that the Bols family started the production of the famous Dutch drink: genever. In other words, a company with a long history and a lot of know-how on making cocktails!
House of Bols is situated close to the Museumsquare and therefore a lot of beautiful museums you can discover before your cocktail. For instance, the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, and the Stedelijk Museum.
