Belgin St Cruyt embodies 500 years of Belgian expertise in distilling and the centuries-old tradition of growing herbs by Belgian monasteries and abbeys. In his Capitulare de Villis, Emperor Charlemagne wrote an obligatory planting of about 70 kinds of herbs for each monastery domain. All monasteries had to adhere to these regulations and thanks to the wise composition, the monks were put on a good vitamin-rich diet. Abbeys also began to gain plant knowledge of New World herbs and have added many exotic spices to their herb garden as a result.
Tasting Note by The Master Distiller
Incredibly complex, herbal gin. Multilayered and intense, but not overpowering. Distinct anise on the finish if consumed neat.
For a perfect serve: over ice, no mixer OR Light Indian, Mediterranean, Lixir Elder flower and Lemon or Franklin’s Pink Grapefruit.
