To this day, Nobeltje offers everyone the ultimate Amelander experience.
The liqueur that originated more than a hundred years ago in café Nobel on the island of Ameland has been called Nobeltje ever since. When the Wadden Sea froze over in the harsh winter of 1902 and supplies from shore were no longer possible, great-grandfather Willem Barend Nobel was forced to be creative with leftover liquor in the café. The mixture that was created then forms the basis of the recipe that has been passed on from father to son, and which the fourth generation of the Nobel family still uses to produce Nobeltje. This family recipe remains a secret, of course, but you can clearly taste the base. Nobeltje is a liqueur based on Dutch rum, with notes of vanilla and orange. The liqueur is traditionally drunk as ‘Amelander coffee’, through the chocolate milk, or with ice as an aperitif or digestif. In modern catering, Nobeltje is popular mixed with Ginger Beer, lots of ice and lime juice. Nobeltje is sold in 1l and 0.7l bottles and has been part of Nobel’s Drinks since 2020, now expanded to include Nobel’s Pink Gin and Nobel’s Jenever.
Nobels Beerenburg 30°
What a Beerenburg is to Frisians, that is to Ameland enthusiasts the Nobeltje. Both drinks have a rich local history that you normally should not touch…. But since the expansion of Nobels Drinks with a Pink Gin and a soft Jenever, Barend Willem Nobel could no longer resist the temptation to add his own twist to thát other drink. And so Nobels Beerenburg liqueur was born. The best of both worlds. An Ameland twist on the somewhat strong Frisian herbal drink. With the addition of the characteristic taste of Eilander Elderflower, a hint of cranberry and a nod to its own Nobeltje in the aftertaste, Nobels Beerenburg liqueur is a luxurious indulgent drink. An everyone’s friend that you drink in the mix, ice cold or with some ice.

Nobels Pink Gin 37,5°
Nobeltje liqueur has been the taste of Ameland since 1902. Nobel’s Drinks was expanded in 2020 to include a soft jenever and Nobel’s Pink Gin. This classic gin gets its pink colour from a hint of cranberry, a fruit found on Ameland and Terschelling. This nod to the island also ensures that Nobel’s Gin is a little bit sweeter. The gin pours summer into your glass whatever the season! Nobel’s Gin is most delicious mixed with a neutral tonic, lots of ice and lime. To add some colour and spice, the pro bartender adds a few drops of Angostura bitters. This fresh sweet perfect serve makes Nobel’s Gin a bestseller on Ameland, and there is no beach club there where Nobel’s Pink Gin and tonic is not the best-selling long drink.
Nobels Genever 35°
Nobeltje liqueur has been the taste of Ameland since 1902. In 2020, Nobel’s Drinks was expanded to include a Pink Gin and a Nobels Genever. The many German guests who visit hotel-restaurant Nobel on Ameland every year ensure that the Genever there has never been and never will be forgotten. In fact, demand has been rising for some years. When it was decided to expand Nobel’s drinks in 2019, the choice was quickly made to market its own Genever. At the request of Nobel’s guests, this young Genever has a wonderfully soft and clear taste. After tasting this Genever, you will understand why this drink is called ‘Dutch Gin’ in the rest of the world. Nobel’s Genever is delicious both neat and as part of a ‘kopstoot ’ (short with chaser), or in a long drink, e.g. combined with a Ginger Ale and a stalk of fresh lemongrass.
