The Bols company has been providing consumers with fine spirits since it was founded in 1575. The products from this company, which remains based in Amsterdam, can be found in bars all over the world. The company may have started out in a distillery named ‘t Lootsje, meaning "the little shed", but it rapidly grew. Now Bols distributes its excellent portfolio of products all over the world. With such a large range of exciting flavours on offer, Bols is sure to have the one you are looking for.
Bols Peach is yet another of the exciting quality flavours on offer from Bols. This liqueur is crystal clear, meaning that it will not affect the final colour of any drink it is mixed into. When you open a bottle of Bols Peach, the fresh aroma of juicy peaches comes across the nose quite clearly. The presence of sun-ripened peaches, fresh from the orchard, is even more pronounced in the mouth. This sweet fruitiness is backed up nicely by the background acidity of orange and citrus.
A high-quality peach liqueur is a must-have for any bartender who wants to make the ever-popular Sex on the Beach or Bellini cocktails. There are so many drinks out there that could use a touch of peach to freshen them up and give them an extra hit of flavour and alcohol. Bols Peach is just the liqueur to help you do so.
Description of Bols Peach
- Colour: This beverage is entirely clear.
- Aroma: As the name implies, Bols Peach is primarily peach-scented. Other citrus scents, such as lemon and orange, also play a key part in this drink's scent profile.
- Taste: The powerful peach scent carries into the flavour. Also, just like the scent, the flavours of lemon and orange also come into play.
PRODUCER: The Bols Distillery was founded in Amsterdam in 1575. However, most of the recipes were created by Lucas Bols, in the early 1700s. The brand continued to gain fame throughout the 1800s and onward. However, it wasn't until the 2000s that the drink gained its high international reputation.
COUNTRY: The Netherlands.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: As with most liqueurs, this drink is made from a flavourless alcohol base with added flavourings. In the case of Bols' products, the flavourless base is made from a distilled mash of (a mix of) corn, rye, and wheat. After this distilled base is made, the flavours (in this case peach and citrus) are added. Since the alcohol content is fairly low, there is also a lot of water in the drink as well. While this liqueur could be drunk on its own, peach liqueurs are best known for being used in a variety is cocktails, most famously: Sex on the Beach.
Lucas Bols returned into Dutch hands and to Amsterdam in April 2006. The company became independent in 2006 by means of a buy out by the management and AAC Capital Partners. Huub van Doorne, former member of the Board of Directors of Rémy Cointreau and now CEO of Lucas Bols, has brought the oldest distillery back to its roots: Amsterdam. In more than 110 countries Bols is known for its liqueurs, gin, genever and vodka. Lucas Bols has the largest cocktail database in the world with 18,000 online recipes. From the 60 classic cocktails in existence, most of them are made with Bols. Lucas Bols is co-founder of The International Bartender Association and founder of The Bols Bartending Academy.More about the Producer
