Distilleerderij 't Nieuwe Diep
Last but not least, this distillery is one of my favorite spots that's hidden away in Amsterdam. It's in the middle of Flevopark, which is between Amsterdam-oost and the Eastern Docklands. The building is a quaint little white house that's right next to a large pond. It has tiered seating that feels almost reminiscent of the Italian countryside. The distillery carries some beers, ciders and wines but the highlight of their drink menu is the huge selection of liquors that they make themselves. Their particular specialty is jenever, a Dutch liquor that is similar to gin. They make a lot of different flavors like lemon, raspberry and vanilla to name a few. The straight jenever is very strong but the likeurtjes (liqueurs) are more sweet. When I went, I had no idea what to order. The bartender was so kind and let me sample a variety of different flavors before I decided on a raspberry liqueur. It was incredibly rich but amazingly unique!
