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.

I really liked this experience. It was fun learning about the liquor on this self guided tour. Especially likes smelling all the different varieties. This is self guided so you can go as slow or fast as you want, which I really liked. The cocktail at the end was a great perk and the bartenders were so much fun!

We had an amazing time in the museum and learnt a lot about bols and the alcohol making progress in general. All the interactive concepts were brilliant. We liked that you could touch, feel and smell everything. The rooms are very aesthetically pleasing too. The bar at the end is fabulous and the guys behind the bar were brilliant!!

Fun but short

This was a fun way to kill a bit of time but it's not a lot for what you pay. You probably walk around for about 30-40 minutes max before you get to the bar which is a nice way to end the tour. If you want to kill an hour this is great if you want a longer experience go to the Heineken instead.
