client: Balls & Glory
partners Filliers Brewery
Since the Balls & Glory restaurants are open at night, they missed a (stronger) drink.
As we know the B&G concept very well (it’s our own child), we tried to work with a local producer for the alcohol base we needed.
Filliers Brewery helped us with a 28-gin:
For Firmin Filliers the creation of a traditional gin in 1928 was purely a question of logic. Juniper berries played as important a role in the production of gin as it did in the production of jenever.
Firmin went about creating his gin recipe with patience adding a further 28 flavour enhancers from citrus fruits to exotic herbs and strong-flavoured roots. The result earned his product a place of honour on the list of their family of spirits: an exceptionally mild, refined and widely prized dry gin.
We added our own recipe of sugar syrup with a lot of lemon & fennel, topped it with soda & their it was: a glorious gin !
