Enjoy a unique and interactive experience in the House of Bols, the world's oldest distillery!

The House of Bols is the house of Lucas Bols, the world's oldest spirits brand. They've been making spirits in Amsterdam since 1575.

The House of Bols will take you on a journey through the world of spirits with all your senses awakened by flavours, aromas and even images and its characteristic sounds. Discover the 38 liqueurs created by Bols, as well as their distillation processes.

The tour starts in the Hall of Taste, then you will see the Delft Blue Room, the Cocktail Club and the Genever Bols room.

Finish off your experience at the Mirror Bar, where the barman will prepare the cocktail of your choice in front of you, which you will then enjoy in this unique, modern bar.
