Keeping with the original Lucas Bols recipe from 1830, Bols Genever is distilled using malt wine and neutral spirit, allowing for a slightly cleaner base than traditional genevers, in turn allowing for more botanical clarity.
One of the oldest distilling companies anywhere in the world, the Bols family started producing liqueurs way back in 1575. Naturally, none of the original members of the family are around today, but their recipes and ethos live on.
Bols Royal Distilleries is situated right in the middle of Amsterdam, tucked in an alleyway right behind Dam Square. The distillery holds many secrets, with knowledge strictly passed on from Master Distiller to Master Distiller.
