DescriptionYou will find the Wynand Fockink Proeflokaal (Dutch for tasting tavern) and liquor store in the Pijlsteeg, an alley behind the National Monument on the Dam square in Amsterdam. In around 1679 Wynand Fockink started a liqueur distillery. Soon a Proeflokaal was added, where customers could taste and buy the products. To this day, this practice has continued; here liqueurs and genevers are still being made using the same 17th century traditional craft methods. Wynand Fockink produces more than 70 Dutch liqueurs and genevers which can be tasted in an authentic 17 century environment in the old time honoured way of bowing to the drink and slurping the first sip from a traditional tulip glass. For groups of up to 12 persons we offer an authentic tasting in our separate tasting room. During a tasting, our specialist will tell you more about the history of Wynand Fockink since 1679 and exciting stories behind some of the legendary liqueurs like Hansje in the Cellar, Brides’ Tears and Half and Half. For this tasting we have made a selection of the six most interesting genevers, liqueurs and brandies for you to enjoy. The tasting also includes a 20 minute tour of the distillery next door.
