A bit of Belgium in your glass with our Belgian Treasures!

Being a Belgian company, we are proud of our Belgian heritage. Our country has more to offer than just delicious chocolate: we are also known for our exquisite diamonds, our tasty waffles, our world-renowned festivals, our cultural heritage and maybe most of all: our mouth-watering beers and other alcoholic beverages.

Filliers

The Belgian Filliers family founded its first distillery all the way back in 1792. Today, the distillery continues to produce genever using malt, wheat, maize and rye according to traditional methods. 3 new products are being added to their line-up:

  • Filliers Dry Gin 28 Pink, based on the authentic recipe by Firmin Filliers. The flavour of this award-winning gin is enhanced with raspberry and goji berries. Goji berries have a reputation as a superfood, originating in ancient Chinese medicine. They are said to repair muscles, protect against illness and – most important of all – to calm your soul.
  • Filliers Barrel Aged Genever 0 years old is a young and pure genever, which has never touched a single barrel. This results in a refreshing spirit that is ideal for many long drink cocktails.
  • Filliers Barrel Aged Genever 8 years old has been maturing in American Oak barrels for over 8 years. This aging tends to tame the juniper flavor but still gives a decent spicy kick. It’s ideal to drink as a mixer and fits perfectly as the base for any type of cocktail.

Belgian Owl

It all started when Etienne Bouillon, Master Distiller, wanted to diversify and develop the local agricultural industry through the creation of an excellent quality Belgian Single Malt Whisky using barley grown in Hesbaye, based on controlled agriculture. The final result is a signature whisky and a visiting card for the region: a complex single malt with the flavours of the local area.

One of their specialties, and a textbook example of their heritage, quality and expertise, is the Belgian Owl Identité single malt whisky. This indispensable drink is the result of the way they use their know-how to introduce the distillate to the oak wood. With tasting notes of pear, muscat, apple jam and vanilla, it will entice your tastebuds to a whole new level.

Best of Belgium

If you’re unsure which brand to take home – sometimes it can be hard to choose from our extensive collection! – we suggest choosing our Best of Belgium giftbox. The perfect present, or maybe the ideal souvenir for yourself: a selection of 3 beers bring you a palet of flavours from some of our nation’s finest beers: Rodenbach, Brugge Tripel and Cornet.

Rodenbach was created by Pedro Rodenbach and his wife in 1836. However, it is Eugène Rodenbach whom Rodenbach has to thank for its unique quality and masterful character. As well as studying the vinification of beer, he optimised the maturation process in oak vats, or maturation casks. The world-renowned halls with 294 oak vats, some of which are 150 years old, are protected as part of the industrial heritage of the Flemish Community. Rodenbach is an exceptional Flemish red ale with a complex fruitiness and a fresh and sour taste.

Brugge Trippel, made in Bruges, has roots all the way to the Middle Ages. This was before the hop plant came to these shores and when brewers were using a herbal flavouring mixture called gruut. The Brugge Tripel retains a herbal aroma, a mark of this history. Tripel means that more raw materials than usual have been used. Tripels are, usually blonde in colour, with a strong flavour of malt and/or hop bitters.

Cornet was created in the 18th century by Theodoor Cornet, a steward of Diepensteyn Castle, for his Lord, the Count of Steenhuffel. This exclusive beer was brewed and stored in oak casks inside the castle. The Count would only serve it to important guests on special occasions. The fresh oak chips used during the brewing process give the beer its distinctive, vanilla flavour. A full-bodied, warm and unique flavour you have got to taste!

Raise your glass to the sun with Veuve Clicquot!

Summer’s here in time: to celebrate the invention of the world-famous rosé champagne, the iconic sparkling wine brand releases two limited editions: Colorama Rosé Brut and Yellow Label Brut.

She firmly believed that the colour of the wine is as important as the taste it leaves in the mouth. Paying tribute to this philosophy, the Maison’s greatest offering is clad in magnificent yellow sun hues.

Celebrate Madame Clicquot’s anniversary and purchase a bottle packaged in fun and customizable boxes.
