  1. I don't know if you are anywhere near Quebec, but the Quebec Liquor Board (SAQ) does list Bols Geneva Gin as one of their products.

    1. Are you looking for the Bols Oude Genever that comes in a tall beige-y crock with a narrow neck? Friends from Holland bring this to me so I've never bought it on my own. Where are you located? Have you asked this question on the "Spirits" board? Have you googled "Bols" or checked with the best liquor store/bar in your area? Also, a great hotel concierge could likely find this for you. Good luck, it is wonderful stuff.

      1. I've gotten Boomsa Oude Genever at LeNell's in Red Hook, Brooklyn. I haven't seen Bols there, but why not give LeNell a call?

          I picked up a bottle of Bols Genever at LeNell's back in December, I'm pretty sure she still is carrying it.

        2. As of September, 2008, Bols Oude Genever is in a new bottle in a relaunch in the US. It's called Bols Genever and is now in a clear/silver bottle. Google "Bols Genever" for the website info - very recent and the website is not 100% complete.

            Bol Genever is at crush. Hunters Point Wine & Spritis in LIC will order if you want it.
