Overview

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.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
