In around 1679, Wynand Fockink opened his spirits and liqueur distillery on the Pijlsteeg in the bustling city center of Amsterdam. In those days distilleries usually included a tasting house and a shop; Wynand Fockink's was no exception. Today, three centuries later, the Pijlsteeg distillery contains an extraordinary collection of antique bottles in premises still furnished in the style of the seventeenth century. Wynand Fockink has continued, throughout the years, to specialize in liqueurs and jenevers which you can still see being made in the distillery. Join one of our guided tours, learn all about how our products are made and choose your favorite from our superb range of Dutch distilled products.

In around 1679, Wynand Fockink opened his spirits and liqueur distillery and am I happy to have experienced an array of different jenevers in that tiny room. It feels more like a tasting room. Great spot!

WF is a great place! Have been there multiple times to try some of their liquers. Even as a local I still consider it always a great experience to go here either with or without visitors (from abroad).

Tucked away in a small alley, this little spot is a fantastic experience. The bartender (liquor sommelier) personalized each selection. The drinks were served in a beautiful little glass (approximately two shots) and cost about 3 Euros. Highly recommended.

A wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing afternoon drink right in the middle of Amsterdam. There's a bar for ordering drinks and a shop to buy full bottles to take with you. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I never miss a visit to WF when in Amsterdam.

Friendly staff and everyone should try a genevre. I had apple tart and butterscotch. Apple tart was my favourite. Lovely little place!

Ventured out to see this and was pleasantly surprised! An enormous selection of schnapps and knowledgeable staff who advised well to your taste. Good atmosphere inside. Be sure to bend down and sip before picking your glass up!

A very tiny, family run place where you can taste home made wine of varied flavours. The guys behind the table Wil suggest you various mixes and flavors. There is a special way of taking the 1st sip, good fun to try..

This place in just a few steps from Dam Square. This distillery has been founded at 1619 and it´s still in the same house. Small place with no chairs and tables. Just a narrow shelf around the small room. People are drinking that great Genever in the alley in the front of the bar. And remember to slurp first, because... More

Open from 3-9pm when we went, queue up for a little while to tell staff what flavours you like, bitter, sweet etc they will then pour you a glass which you start to drink at the bar then take off to drink either in the bar or outside. Great fun staff with a funny story to tell, just ask if... More
