A reference to the 28 botanicals used to make this gin, and also a reference to the year 1928, and the origins of this Belgian gin.
This brand is steeped in history, being nearly as old as Bols, and their first distiller, Filliers, was born in 1792!
He became obsessed with Genever, the gin of the time, and eventually he persuaded his family to produce their own.
It was at the end of the great war in 1928, that the current manifestation of the Filliers lineage, started making gin again, and Firmin developed this 28 botanical strong recipe.
They sold their gin across Europe, but it didn’t make it to the UK, until 2012. The year that we took over Atlas Bar.
This was mainly due to gin being less popular here, during the 70’s and 80’s.
We love this with an orange garnish and sweeter tonic such as Double Dutch or 1724.
