The origins of Bols date back to the days of Lucas Bols, the founder of Bols Royal Distilleries. Lucas Bols started distilling back in the late sixteenth century, in 1575. He began distilling spirits and liqueurs in a small distillery in what is now the centre of Amsterdam. Lucas Bols experimented with new herbs, spices, and exotic fruits that were brought from around the world to Holland by Dutch merchants. After carefully selecting his ingredients, he distilled a variety of spirits with surprisingly subtle flavours.

Finishes with a vivacious, sweet oatmeal, dried flower and pepper accented fade. A delicious, vibrant and bready genever.
