In 1575, ‘t Lootsje distillery was opened in Amsterdam. The name ‘t Lootsje means "the little shed" in Dutch. It was the founder's grandson, Lucas Bols, who began shipping Bols liqueurs all over the world. When he became a major shareholder in the Dutch East India Trading Company, he had access to exotic herbs and spices which allowed him to create over 300 different recipes for liqueurs and spirits.

The Bols family started to distil genever in 1664. Bols Zeer Oude Genever is made using the old style of genever production. The name "Zeer Oude" means "very old", in honour of the age of this process. Made of rye, corn, and wheat with a secret mix of botanicals, this juniper-flavoured spirit is a unique gem to have in any bar. Enjoy the malt tones of genever, which are reminiscent of whisky, in this classic Dutch spirit straight out of Amsterdam.

Bols Zeer Oude Genever is a transparent, sweet spirit which tastes of grain, fruit, and juniper. It is perfect to enjoy neat or as part of any classic cocktail. You can also try it as a classic Dutch kopstoot, filling a tulip-shaped shot glass to the brim with genever and serving a wheat beer on the side, sipping them in turn to let the wheat flavours play off one another.
