Visit the mini brewery, a tasting bar and see the shire horses that still deliver beer throughout the city.
At this glamorous venue, hospitality students can expand their bartending skills and learn about Lucas Bols, the world’s oldest distilled brand. Visit the Hall of Taste and Mirror Bar, then learn to mix your own cocktails at the Bols Bartending Academy.
Get to know your Dutch cheeses at the Reypenaer Cheese Tasting Room in the centre of old Amsterdam. You can personally test and evaluate the flavour, the aroma and the qualities of the cheeses, all under the guidance of an expert taster. Reypenaer is a family business with a long tradition of artisan cheese making, going back more than 100 years.
Stop at one of three farms (hoeves) in the countryside surrounding Amsterdam for an authentic taste of traditional Dutch cheese making. See how traditional edam, gouda or sheep and goats’ cheese is made, then sample their unique flavours in a beautiful rural setting.
