We went here over 12 years ago as when we seen the queues for other museums we thought it would be different from the norm, as you go around learning how old Bols is and the different flavours that they produce. It was great as you got a shot of the genever and a cocktail so fast forward to this time round not much of the tour has changed, wasn't keen on having a shot of cassis in some room where the floor vibrates and some video plays (bit like a rave). And up the stairs to the mirrored bar for your cocktail, if you fancy another cocktail you can pay €6 for it. Thank you to the bar person for taking a photo of us as we showed her the one we had taken all those years ago, it was really appreciated

Probably the best and cheapest cocktails in Amsterdam. Ticket was cheaper online through Get Your Guide. The museum showed the development of genever and the Bols brand with some beautiful displays of the bottles. The price included a free cocktail. There is a good range of alcoholic cocktails and a few virgin cocktails. The bar staff are very knowledgeable and can make a great variety. I had an old fashioned and a negroni. I also tried an aged genever which was like a whisky. After the museum visit you can stay in the bar as long as you like - which could be dangerous!

Amazing value for money. With your ticket you get the tour, a shot during the tour and a cocktail (worth €6) at the bar at the end. Further cocktails can be purchased at €6 per go, staff couldn’t have been any more pleasant and hospitable and myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed our experience at House of Bols. Cocktails we tried were all amazing though the Redlight Negroni is probably a bit much for most. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Amsterdam

Drinks and liqueurs are terrible (artificial flavor taste). The tour is ok if you don’t have a prior knowledge of distillation. If you do have some knowledge of distillation, this will disappoint. The museum is essentially a trap to get you to buy a €16 cocktail that tastes like cough syrup. Pass!

This was one of the most fun experiences during our visit to Holland. As you walk through the Bols distillery museum, you learn the history of Gin making. You get to smell the various scents/flavors infused into Jeneever (Dutch Gin); you get to taste a small sample as well. At the end, you get to have one free cocktail of your choice at the bar.

Because of the Covid crisis, we've been obliged to cancel our trip to Amsterdam as a lot of people.
We asked to get reimbursed, but no refund is possible they answered without suggest us to change the date in the future.
Should we go to Amsterdam, we surely won't get there !

Really loved this tour and was interesting to learn more about the different processes used to create the different flavours. The tour did get held up in a couple of places, mainly because there were only 3 booths and 1 was out of service but otherwise great. They probably also should keep the bar open a little later as it was already closing soon so not many people in there. The staff were all friendly and I went away with a few bottles from the shop too!

Spent about an hour going around the self-guided tour. A great interactive experience and so much choice when it came to the cocktails at the end. Would recommend after seeing the museums, as it is right opposite Van Gogh.

Good if you can have the Cocktail experience otherwise is a bit of let down.
Good to discover the history, variety of flavours and the vast amount of choices but it s a bit boring. Till you hit the bar and the knowledgeable bartender make you the Cocktail
Just say what you roughly like and they ll improvise. And won't disappoint you. We couldn't do the Cocktail making experience as it was sold out but it looked fun.
