This genever and liqueur bar is tucked away just off Dam square, and is worth a visit. We tried a couple of different flavours served in the traditional style, and the bartender let us try them before we bought. Good value too - two tasting drinks came in under 6 euros. Could do with a little more space as it... More

The 45 minute tour was a nice way to experince the Dutch style drink. The tastings seem to come at you in rapid succession though. There was one point where my wife and I were worried if we would make it out on our own two feet. We did, and had a lovely time. If you have an extra 45... More

They overfill so you have to take the first sip while it is still on the bar. I liked my Framboos but the citreon was too sour for my friends.

We were three days in Amsterdam and every night we came here to try some other brandy taste. You can have whatever taste You want. I told the bartender I want something chocolate and fruity in the same time. Off course they had it :-). There is no music at all, only people talking sound and You won't even notice... More

We really enjoyed the distillery tour, learning about the production of liqueurs and jenever. The guy hosting our group was informative, and very enigmatic, talking us through the process of creating flavoured tinctures for the liqueurs. The tasting that accompanied the tour was great fun, and a real eye opener - some of the flavours were a little off for... More

We spotted this in our guidebook and thought it looked interesting. Hidden down an alleyway off Dam Square it is well worth a visit. There is a huge selection of Jenevers (Dutch Gin) available as well as some beer on draught. Some locals were partaking of both simultaneously. Very friendly welcome and when we asked for some recommendations we were... More

This is an excellent place to visit in Amsterdam, and a great place to buy a bottle of something special for your next dinner party, or a souvenir to take home with you. Stop in for a small taste of their homemade liqueurs, and definitely make sure to try the chocolate hazelnut liqueur. I am not a big fan of... More

If you drink and you visit Amsterdam then you have to go here. The guys behind the bar are amazing, as is the choice of over 150 different drinks! I highly recommend the cherry chocolate :)

Tucked slightly away from the usual tourist places is this little gem. You really wouldn’t know it was there unless someone told you, and luckily our hotel manger did. Amazing place, just like going back in time well worth a visit….
