Wynand Fockink is one of the oldest distilleries in Amsterdam, producing top-notch liqueurs, genevers and brandies since the 17th century. Nothing has changed since then, including the tasting room, so you almost literally take a step back in time. Among the various liqueurs they serve, you will find many old-fashioned Dutch variations, such as Volmaakt Geluk (Perfect Bliss) and our favourite, Hansje in de Kelder (Jack in the Cellar). Inside you are surrounded by wooden panels and stools, a historic bar and a glimpse of the old times in the capital of The Netherlands. The tasting room, which houses a very special collection of antique bottles, still maintains the tradition of bowing for the first sip because of the way they pour the drinks into a small glass, just enough to fill the whole thing so you have to sip the first nip of the little ‘borrelglaasje’. Can you, without spilling a drop?
