Gouden Carolus

Belgium Founded in 1471

Gouden Carolus Belgian Single Malt Whisky is distilled at the De Molenberg Distillery.

Built in Blaasveld, on a 17-century family farm this Whisky is distilled from the mash of Gouden Carolus Tripel, matured in first-fill Bourbon casks and finished in bespoke Anker oak casks.

This unique Flemish Whisky is a refined Spirit with a rich and balanced flavor. The subtle fruit aromas are delightfully enhanced by hints of wood and vanilla.

Gouden Carolus has earned several accolades, including “Best Belgian Single Malt” at the 2018 World Whiskies Awards, first place “Master” at the 2017 World Whisky Masters, and a Gold Medal at the 2017 International Spirits Challenge

From 1637 to 1914, the Miller family Van Breedam produced jenever on the Molenberg in Blaasveld. In 1872, Louis Van Breedam and his sister left the Molenberg to become brewers in Mechelen. For generations the Molenberg has stayed in the hands of the family as they continue the distilling tradition.

Distillery De Molenberg was constructed in 2010. Built in Blaasveld, on a 17-century family farm their Whiskies are distilled from the mash of Gouden Carolus Tripel.

Their world-famous Gouden Carolus Single Malt was launched on November 23, 2013, receiving much critical acclaim.

Distilling Whisky can be considered a form of art. In Blaasveld, a modern, fully-fledged production-unit is gleaming. A first for Belgium are the hand hammered, copper pot stills, made by Forsyths, one of the most well-known coppersmiths in Scotland.
