Established in 1575, Lucas Bols is the world’s oldest distilled spirits company, making liqueurs and genever by combining centuries-old recipes, natural ingredients and traditional flavour-extraction methods. For 379 of those years, Lucas Bols was run by three successive families. Then it went through a series of mergers and acquisitions, finally re-emerging as an independent company, once again in Dutch hands.
