In the heart of the smallest village of the island Ameland lies the characteristic Nobel hotel-restaurant. The company is run by the fourth generation of the Nobel family and is well-known for the local liqueur 'Nobeltje'. The founder, Willem Barend Nobel, has developed the beverage in 1902. Since then it has grown into one of the most renowned Ameland specialities. The rich history of the family is well documented and can be discovered in the liquor store. Tastings with a viticulturist are often organized and many delicacies are sold there.
