In a list of modern cocktails, a number of them usually call for the beloved flavour of the humble strawberry. This flavour can be achieved using either syrups, which are generally quite sweet, or premixes, which sometimes taste too industrial. That is exactly why Bols has come to the rescue of cocktail lovers everywhere with its Bols Strawberry liqueur.
Since Bols Strawberry contains real, fresh strawberry juice, bartenders no longer have to use less than optimal methods to achieve that strawberry flavour that customers crave. This bright red liqueur looks, smells, and tastes like freshly-picked, sun-kissed strawberries. The slight citrus notes in the background serve to round out the flavour of this delightful spirit.
This is yet another winning product from Bols, a company that set up shop in Amsterdam way back in the 16th century. While the first distillery was named ‘t Lootsje, which means "the little shed", the company quickly outgrew that shed to become a leader in the spirit world. No matter what flavour you are looking for to mix up your next drink, Bols is sure to have what you need. That is why this brand has been a fixture behind bars for such a long time. Bols Strawberry is just one excellent member of a grand portfolio of brands.

PRODUCER: Lucas Bols was started nearly 450 years ago, making it one of the oldest distilled spirits companies on the globe. It began by creating a small distillery in Amsterdam and carefully making liqueurs. All these years later, the flavour profile remains the first priority of Bols, which selects the finest fruits, herbs, seeds, and spices to craft liqueurs through which long-honed expertise meets modern needs.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: Despite the long-standing popularity of strawberry-based cocktails such as the daiquiri and the margarita, for many years bartenders and hobby mixologists had to make do with premixed and processed juices or syrups, overly-sugared and with false flavours. Bols Strawberry provides a gorgeous and high-quality alternative, a liqueur containing real strawberry juice, offering the true, sun-ripened nature of the berry to your bar. Try it in a Mahoney, which is a quarter shot each of Bols Strawberry and vodka shaken with ice. Or drizzle it over your ice-cream for a grown-up dessert with a delicious difference, and taste the sunshine.
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 Winery
