You will like to know that…
Bols Apricot Brandy is, from all of the fine products offered by the company over the years, one of the oldest liqueur recipes the company has invented. This high-quality liqueur gains its flavour from the use of both fresh apricot juice and the crushed kernels of the apricot fruit itself, which gives a nutty, amaretto flavour to the whole. A touch of orange rounds out the flavour of the apricot to give it more depth and richness.
With its beautiful golden-amber colour in the distinctive bartender-friendly bottle, Bols Apricot Brandy is a must-have. It is an essential ingredient in a number of popular cocktails such as the Zombie, Mai Tai, and Apricot Fizz. Also excellent on its own when mixed into orange juice or soda, this apricot-flavoured spirit is sure to be a crowd pleaser. That is why it has been on the market so long - showing no sign of disappearing any time soon.
Bols itself is a company that has been taking great care of its customers since first opening in 1575. The brand started out in a distillery named ‘t Lootsje, which translates as "the little shed", but quickly spread its wings as the quality and range of flavours offered began to win the company fame. With an excellent portfolio of products available all over the world, Bols is sure to have the flavour you need for any drink you may dream up.
