All good things must end, back to the buses! Belgium is not a big country, and we basically went from one side of Belgium to the other, from the Dutch border to the French border. Near Charleroi you will find a very scenic spot, a castle-like building in the middle of flat land, that nowadays contains the Distillerie de Biercée. It’s not only a marvel to see from the outside, inside it is equally interesting, showing the tools of the trade that had been in use until 25 years ago in a museum, including the star of the show, a pot still made from the torpedo tube of a German WW2 submarine. Christophe Mulatin, the current master distiller, presented the portfolio of the distillery. A successful work – together with him the distillery more than quadrupled their output since the nineties. The flagship brand, Eau de Villée, has long been the backbone of the company, but they have much more to offer, from gin over vermouth to another traditional product, the herbal liqueur Biercine. In 2019, the Distillerie de Biercée has merged with the brewery Brasserie des Légendes. The CEO of the combined new company, Pierre Delcoigne, gave us some first-hand insight into the synergies that a combined brewery-distillery has and the new possibilities and chances such a merger offers to both. On the location, in a very beautiful hall with classic beer signs all over the walls, there is also a restaurant that was able to serve a meal (and lots of Belgian beer, again!) for more than a hundred very hungry people at the same time.
