Spent about an hour going around the self-guided tour. A great interactive experience and so much choice when it came to the cocktails at the end. Would recommend after seeing the museums, as it is right opposite Van Gogh.

Very interesting if you are interested in the history and origins of spirits! Theres a few fun activities, guess the liquor/spirit by smell alone was my favourite. With a tasty cocktail at the end it's well worth the money.

A very Enjoyable Cocktail Class
Had a lot of fun, the class focused more on picking flavours to our tastes than just making a prescribed cocktail.
