The Delfts Blue collection of Lucas Bols. Since the fifties, KLM Business Class passengers receive a little Delft Blue house as a gift. These designs of old Dutch houses are based on famous buildings and monuments in the Netherlands. Each year Bols and KLM bring out at least 1 new house. There are now 88. First they were filled with Bols liqueur, since 1986 with Bols young genever. There are keen collectors of these houses all over the world.

HEAR  In the World of Cocktails the Bols liqueur range occupy the place where they belong: the night life. A 280' projection makes it possible for the visitor to step literally into the world of night life. A tailor made video clip in which various facets of night life will be presented in a visually inspiring way. The clip is supported by an electro-house track, specially produced for House of Bols, the musical style that has been taking over the dance floors worldwide and allows one to experience the feeling of enjoying cocktails.

TOUCH In the Hall of Taste of House of Bols you can touch the ingredients of genever and liqueurs, such as lemon peel and juniper berries. Also various touch screens make the whole journey of exploration and discovery even more interactive.

TASTE Taste is sum total of your eyes, your nose, your mouth and hands. Do you know that around 95% of your taste is determined by smell? In House of Bols you can undergo two exciting taste-tests and experience how your brain reacts to aromas, colors and pictures. Towards the end of the tour you can select your own genever cocktail and enjoy it in the spectacular Mirror Bar.
