Discover the House of Bols

Jenever is the traditional Dutch style of Gin. The name stems from the use of juniper berries (jeneverbes in Dutch) in making the spirit. Originally, the berries where used to mask the unpleasant taste of the earliest gins, those where distilled from malt wine and at the time they lacked the more refined distillation techniques. The House of Bols will take you on a journey through this fascinating history, during which you’ll be able to taste the jenever and its ingredients at various stages of preparation. You’ll also see the impressive traditional distillery room which was used to make the spirit in the old days. After an interactive tourthrough the facilities, the expert bartenders at the Mirror Bar will prepare a refreshing cocktail for you. They will also gladly share some of their tips and tricks so you can impress your friends. The House of Bols tour also includes a visit to the Bols specialist store, where you can purchase some of their best spirits to take home.
