Are you in the spirit for a nip of the aqua vitae? Then, shoot on down to the House of Bols for a truly stimulating experience. It all starts in the History Room, where you step back in time to the Dutch Golden Age and witness the rise of a genever, or Dutch gin, family dynasty. Next is the Hall of Taste, where you are encouraged to explore your own palette and test your senses. After investigating several other exhibits involving genever ingredients, the distillation process, and a few other surprises, it’s time for the best part: Tasting!
Get ready to imbibe a genever cocktail while you take a good, hard look at yourself in the Mirror Bar. Aptly named, the Mirror Bar is the place for you to flaunt your mixology skills by crafting your own genever cocktail. Or, sit back, relax, and watch professionals put on a fabulous firewater fiesta. Either way, it ends the same…with a genever cocktail in your hand and a smile on your face! Proost!
