Founded in 1575
Claiming to be the world’s oldest family of liquor brands, Bols was founded by the eponymous family in 1575, although their distillery was originally named “'t Lootsje”, or “the little shed.” Of course, they soon grew too big for their britches (people wore those back then) after their cumin and cardamom spirits grew in popularity, and, when Luca Bols took the reins in the 17th century, he turned the distillery into a world-class institution with a larger distillery. Now, they produce Galliano, Vaccari, and their own line of products... including yogurt liqueur. Bottoms up!
Adam Lapetina is the partnerships editor at Thrillist, and hopes that Bols' yogurt liqueur doesn't date back to 1575. Read his musings at @adamlapetina.
