Bols Dry Orange Curaçao is a dark orange liqueur made from Curaçao orange peel distillates to which a tincture of bitter herbs is added. The use of a rum distillate as the base spirit means Bols Dry Orange mixes better in rum based cocktails than grain or brandy-based orange liqueurs.
Dry Orange is one of the oldest liqueurs in the Bols range. At the world exhibition in Antwerp in 1885/86, a reporter wrote a raving review about this liqueur, describing it as “Nectar of the gods, distilled from sweet fruit from the West” (Indies).

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/03/2012


Clear, deep bronze amber.


Pungent orange zest and red grapefruit juice with faint vanilla.


Slightly syrupy sweet palate with zesty orange (flesh and juice) with vanilla and faint aniseed.


Clove spice emerges in the orange zesty finish.
