Belgium’s finest.
 
Being one of the oldest brands in the World, the story of Filliers begins sometime towards the end of the 18th century in Belgium. Karel Lodewijk Filliers started the Jenever business on the family farm and ignited the passion for distillation that would continue for five generations! It was in the year 1928 that Firmin Filliers came up with the recipe for Gin with 28 different botanicals, and it hasn’t changed since then. Why change perfection, right?
 
The production was slow in the middle of last century as Whisky was a more popular choice of spirit, but in the last decade things have changed. The craft Gin movement is growing growing stronger, and now this legendary Gin returned its former glory. Filliers Dry Gin is a small batch Gin created in copper stills. It was infused with 28 botanicals, in addition to juniper, to form the soul of this descent of Jenever a real tradition in a bottle!

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by vodka, lobster or pomegranate. They say the original and only real Martini consists of Gin, vermouth & olives, period!

Wayne,
I loved it. First dry gin I’ve tried and very glad it did.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Too harsh. Hits the tongue like a freight train and then lingers with harsh after tones. Has no real scent and offers little to endear.
 
Lisa
Lisa,
Loved this one. Great choice for a dry gin.
Aljaz
Aljaz,
I loved it too! Great gin.
Michael
Michael,
This is more of an acquired taste - the pine somewhat overwhelms. Not bad, but there are better gins.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
This is a very classic but mild tasting gin. In my opinion, this is your “gateway” gin into becoming a gin lover. For the more seasoned gin drinker, it was a little weak
 
Richard
Richard,
A unique and delicate find, this was why I joined Flaviar! When I perused the catalogue, this was one of the many varietals of Gin which I did not know. Granted, I am whiskey fellow myself, so there were juniper-infused beverages which threw me from the tried path. From the Gin Lane collection, this was the third and final glass I poured and it was worth it. A remarkable gin that mixes the perfect amount of spice with herb to create a floral presentation and one that is hard to replicate. If you see it, get it. You certainly will not be upset with this remarkable choice.

Not a fan of the dry old fashioned taste. Good benchmark gin though. really enjoyed it in tonic water

Larry,
Good favor with a typical juniperberry dominance.
 
Scott
Scott,
Smooth, easy-going, less spicy and herbaceous gin. A bit too booze-forward for me, but perhaps that could be improved in a cocktail.
