We are the tasting house of the Amsterdam based distillery A. van Wees ‘De Ooievaar’ anno 1782, located at the Herengracht 319 in Amsterdam city center. You are welcome at our tasting house every day from 11.00 AM for drinks, tastings or some great local food.
We serve over 17 types of genevers (Dutch gin), more than 50 liqueurs and several other hard liquors from our own distillery. Our experienced Amsterdam bartenders love to tell you more about the history of our drinks and our distillery. Next to our genevers we serve over 20 local beers for a real Dutch experience, the Headbutt, which is the custom of drinking a genever with your beer.
At our food menu you will find a lot of items that are typical for a Bar in Amsterdam, like our famous Dutch Cheese Fondue, a Chicken Satay and some great burgers ans steaks. We also love working with local and seasonal products that you can find on our menu from time till time.
On a good day you can enjoy the sun till late at night at our cozy terrace. From our terrace and patio, you have a great view over the Herengracht, one of Amsterdams most famous canals. You can even reach our tasting house by boat!
