Fodor's Review

This is Amsterdam's most famous—and miraculously least hyped—proeflokaal (tasting room). Opened in 1679, this dimly lit, blithely cramped little bar just behind the Hotel Krasnapolsky has a menu of more than 60 Dutch spirits that reads like poetry: Bruidstranen (bride's tears) and Boswandeling (a walk in the woods) are two favorites. Call ahead for a guided tour of the distillery.
