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.

Second time, and it was even better! The experience is even more immersive now, and that's really cool! The cocktail at the bar really top at the end, we love it! The team is nice. Good on the other hand, it's hard not to go to the shop suddenly :)

Not what I expected but if you have an interest in cocktail mixing or bartending definitely interesting. The "historical" part doesn't last very long, then there are a few other elements and finally there is a cocktail in a small bar in the house. The finale was definitely our highlight.

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!
