Full description
At the House of Bols you’ll learn about the history of Lucas Bols, the world’s oldest distilled spirit brand, which has been making liqueurs in Amsterdam since 1575! You’ll also discover Bols Genever, Holland’s rediscovered cocktail spirit, which dates back to 1820. On this 90-minute visit, the House of Bols will take you on a spectacular journey that incorporates flavors, aromas, images, sound, and film. The self-guided tour includes the Hall of Taste, where you’ll find all 38 Bols liqueurs, the Delft Blue Room, the World of Cocktails Club, and the Bols Genever Room. Your self-guided tour ends in the revolutionary Mirror Bar, where bartenders will mix your preferred Bols Genever and liqueur cocktail before your very eyes. If you’d like to learn the art of flair bartending you can do so in the magical Flair Booth with the specially designed Bols flair bottles. Cocktail enthusiasts can also shop till they drop in the Bols Shop or enjoy a second Bols cocktail for just EUR 6.00. As the winner of the Dutch Design Award for Best Exhibition and Experience, the House of Bols is proving that heritage and history mix perfectly with innovation and contemporary design. The House of Bols is located in Amsterdam’s famous Museum Quarter, across from the Van Gogh Museum and next to the Rijksmuseum.

It was a lot of fun to first walk through the different rooms at your own pace, demonstrating the steps of making the Bols Genever, and then enjoy a cocktail of your choice. Most visitors used the bar in a nice atmosphere for more cocktails. One of the bartenders had passed an exam, so all the guests present were summarily invited to a shot. The people of Amsterdam are once again the greatest!

In the House of Bols, the entire history of this company as well as the creation of the drink recipes and the associated ingredients are presented very vividly and well. It's fun to walk through the exhibition and have a bartender create a drink of your choice at the end. One star was deducted due to the fact that, despite a visit and an audio guide, we were only on the road for a little over an hour at all stations. Full-bodied 90 minutes were announced.

That was significantly better than expected. The cocktails afterwards in the bar are really awesome and for 6€ they are really very fair, if not too cheap. Every drink is mixed in front of your eyes. The tour with the audio guide and the surprise are really successful. It's worth every penny.
