In around 1679, Wynand Fockink opened his spirits and liqueur distillery on the Pijlsteeg in the bustling city center of Amsterdam. In those days distilleries usually included a tasting house and a shop; Wynand Fockink's was no exception. Today...more

Hidden in the back streets is this fine historic bar and shop. There is a large range of Jenever to try (don’t call it gin!) and the knowledgeable bar staff will recommend one for your tastes. They are served in small schooners, in the traditional...More
Earlier this evening, this place was racist to me, my family and my colleagues. We went there shortly after 8 PM, and the tasting room already had a few customers. We were asked where we were from and answered, saying we are from Turkey. We...More
Such a great little place to visit. We had the lovely Max take us through our tasting - very friendly and knowledgeable. The Jenever was amazing and will definitely visit again on our next trip. Thanks Guys.
We were recommended to go here by a local but in fact they only had 5 beers and they could only serve them in half pint glasses so we had one and moved on. It looks like a great place if you want to try...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
