    The museum is very small but the "smell-room" was fun.. the free cocktail was horrible for my taste (not much variety to chose) but we had a few shots of different drinks which were really nice :)

    Short, but sweet interactive tour of a surprisingly historic brand. Tickets are €13 online and includes entry, a free cocktail and a couple of tasters. Extra cocktails are only a fiver each.

    Funny to visit) was surprised what a big story has Bols. Cocktails are great, talk to the barmen)

    Get a Dutch & Stormy. It's so good and strong but doesn't taste strong. You now have a nice little buzz to go back to the rainbow room and take a ton of photos, do a kartwheel, it's your world.

    One of the oldest distilled brand in the world! Give it a go and enjoy a lovely cocktail at the end!

    If you're more into whiskey, you might enjoy the very old genever instead of the younger varieties.
