If you’d like to try your own hand at bartending you can do so in the Flair Booth containing Bols flair bottles.
Following your experience a half-hour cocktail workshop at 2.00pm, 4.00pm or 6.30pm. During this workshop you will learn how to make the most delicious cocktails and create 2 different cocktails yourself. Decide whether you want to do the House of Bols audio-tour before or after the workshop.
Make sure to arrive an hour before the workshop, or have an hour after the workshop to do the tour. Do you want to do the workshop at 6.30pm? Then you can only do the tour beforehand and you need to be at House of Bols one hour ahead of time.
