In 1880 the founder Karel Lodewijk Filliers was responsible that a pot still of one's own was installed on the farm still used agriculturally to overlook the process of distilling better. Kamiel Filliers ( born 1836) supports him in the now second generation.
Firmin Filliers was born 1888 and belongs to the third generation of the family. He took over the leadership of the business and created the recipe for the Filliers Dry Gin 28 in 1928.
After the second World War the brothers Louises and Carlos Filliers took the corporate management in fourth generation and were responsible for the successful development of the existing qualities.
