House of Bols @ Amsterdam


Ever gotten tipsy in a museum? Here's your chance.


The House of Bols offers an interactive journey through the world of cocktails, with colorful exhibits that challenge visitors' sense of taste and smell.


At the end of the visit, choose a complimentary drink from a wide range of unique cocktails using booze by Bols, the world's oldest distilled liquor brand, established in Amsterdam in 1575.


Bartenders whip up the concoctions at the museum's sleek Mirrors Bar.


Caipinevra (a Brazilian cocktail with a Dutch twist, containing Bols Jonge Jenever, cane sugar & lime wedges for fruity flavors), alongside Dutch & Butterscotch (a bittersweet Manhattan with a spicy twist, comprising Bols Corenwyn, Bols Butterscotch liquor, Angostura bitter, orange zest for a malt-&-caramel blend).






House of Bols,
Amsterdam.

  2. That's interesting, a bit like visiting a whisky distillery in Scotland and getting a (few) complimentary drinks after. ;)
