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….

Initially slightly difficult to find however the previous reviews are really accurate. A group of 10 of us did the tour, which lasted approximately one hour. There were several different liquors to try and the who set up is just great. One of the best alcohol tours I've done.

We found this very easily after reading previous reviews. If you face the hotel Kransnapolsky in Dam Square walk down the alley way on the right hand side of the hotel. Once in the alley you will see the green neon sign up on the wall. Inside the bar you can sample the Jenever. This is not like London dry... More
