Lucas Bols Genever Amsterdam
Bols Genever just celebrated a launch party in Nashville at the Holland House. Dutch Owner Cees and his business partner Terrell welcomed the the Lucas Bols USA team as well as 75 revelers with classic cocktails and Dutch fare. Following are the cocktail recipes that were served at the event.

In 1664, Luca Bols started the production of Genever. In 1820, it perfected its Genever recipe. In 1870, Genever outsold Gin in the U.S. by six to one. Prior to the 1900s, Genever is mentioned in every major cocktail book and listed as its own spirit category.
