© House of Bols

Bols, the oldest distillery in the world, has been brewing liqueurs in Amsterdam since 1575. But it was Lucas Bols, who took the reins of the company about a century after its inception, who turned Bols into a world-famous brand. Not only did he expand the number of liqueurs, he also started selling jenever or Dutch gin. Nowadays you can visit the House of Bols at the Museumplein in Amsterdam. It is a unique experience that you will definitely enjoy.
