Article: Filliers Dry Gin 28 Tangerine
Country: Belgium
Classification: Premium Gin
Producer: Filliers
Alcohol: 43.7%
Colour: Clear
Flavour: Aaromas of orange and tangerine with a fresh touch of lime enveloped in the subtle fragrance of juniper berry and coriander.
Taste: The first impressions are mellow and fruity with a distinct taste of fresh orange/tangerine mingled with a complex blend of spices. Besides notes of juniper there is a warm base of cardamom followed by sharper notes of coriander and pepper. Combined with the slightly bitter edge of the hops, the result is a complex flavour that is a perfect balance of carefully selected spices and fruits.
Finish: Long and gentle with lovely dry notes at the end.
Drink recommendation: Just right for mixing, or simply straight with an ice cube.

The family Filliers lived until the beginning of the 18th century exclusively of the farming. 1792 Karel Lodewijk Filliers was born in Bachte-Maria-Leerne, 15 km west of Ghent and had the idea of extending the family-owned enterprise by the production of Genever at an early age.

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.

Since the year 1980 the nephews Jan (1957 - 2008) and Bernard Filliers play a part in the management.

The company Filliers was extended continuously over decades and nowadays is a quality supplier in the section of Genever. This is already the fifth generation.
