A visit to The House of Bols, Cocktail & Genever Experience on the Museumplein square in Amsterdam, is a unique adventure and an unforgettable interactive experience of the glamorous world of cocktails, liqueurs, bartending and the Dutch spirit Genever. At the House of Bols you will find all about Lucas Bols – the world’s oldest distilled spirit brand, which has been making liqueurs in Amsterdam since 1575! You will also discover Bols Genever – Holland’s rediscovered cocktail spirit, which dates back to 1820.

House of Bols takes you on a spectacular journey through flavours, aromas, images, sound and film. The tour incorporates the Hall of Taste, where you will discover all 38 Bols liqueurs and how they are made, the Delfts blue room, the World of Cocktails ‘club’ and the mysterious Bols Genever Room.

The tour ends in the revolutionary Mirror Bar, where bartenders mix your preferred Bols Genever and liqueur cocktail before your very eyes. Those who wish to learn the art of flair bartending (think Tom Cruise in ‘Cocktail’) 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 € 6,50
