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.

Right off the main pedestrian street between Dam Square and the RLD, this is a place you MUST find. We have been here twice. Most recently we only had one day in Amsterdam and my mother German in law really wanted to come here because of their authentic schnaps. They have so much to chose from and you can taste... More

Neat experience, but not much to choose from if you dont like sweet drinks/shots. They have beer as well but the hype is more for all the drink combinations. I would recommend this if you are in the area, but not worth a special trip. I am not a fan of sweet drinks so it was just okay- my husband... More

Possibly the best place to have a couple of interesting drinks in Amsterdam. The staff are friendly and patient and more than willing to help you to find the perfect drink. While we initially went to taste some jenever, we got sidetracked into the many liqueurs and fruit brandies. The lady behind the bar made us some great mixes (cocktails?)... More

I'd call this more of a paid tasting room than a bar; even though you could safely come in and totter out happily without having bought a bottle of their wonderful Genever or liqueurs in the store next door, it's more likely that you will after having had a snifter or two. My fiance and I personally found the liqueurs... More

Searched out this tiny bar to find the best jenever and were not disappointed! We tried the plum, ginger, butterscotch, licorice, creme brulee and apple tart jenever liqueurs and all were amazing. Drank them outside sitting on the window ledge, others did the same and the actual bar was also full but not unpleasantly so. The bar tenders were brilliant,... More

I cannot recommend a visit to this little pub highly enough! We took part in the distillery tour at 17.50 Euros each, but as this included about 8 tasters each of various genevers we thought it to be very good value. It took about an hour. There is a male and a female toilet for patrons to use. We enjoyed... More

My Dutch family took me there in the late afternoon so there was no problems finding the place because they already knew where it was. The bartender was very friendly and upbeat. Despite it being a small area with no seating, the atmosphere in the shop was a cozy and comfortable one. It was fun that you have to bow... More

We had drinks here late afternoon/ early evening based on the many other excellent reviews in trip advisor. The venue is a little tricky to find at first but well worth it. The atmosphere is awesome and the range of drinks is huge. There aren't any seats which is a small inconvenience but hardly something to put you off. The... More

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!
