The design of the bottle is a tribute to the city of Binche, worldwide known for its carnival and its architectural heritage. The ‘blood orange’ flavor is a reference to the gift offered by the Gille, Carnival’s King, on Shrove Tuesday at Binche. The Lion and the silver color appear on the former coat of arms as well as on the city flag of Binche. This original brand of gin is created, distilled and bottled in the Walloon region at the Distillery of Biercée.
Each spice is distilled separately to avoid quality variations.
The boiler warmer in the hammered copper vats allows this Gin to develop its very special character.
The Gin of Binche has a nice flowery flavor followed by a herbaceous note of juniper berries.
Delicate and well balanced in the mouth, the gin is characterized by the smoothness of the blood orange.
Our advice is to taste the gin with a neutral tonic, but with natural flavoring.
It results in a unique, soft, tasty and aromatic gin !
Each spice is distilled separately to avoid variations in quality.
The heating on a water bath in hammered copper vats enables this gin to develop its particular nature.

A TALENTED MASTER DISTILLER
A passion for taste above all
Working for and at the Biercée Distillery is, first and foremost, a story of passion. Many nature-lovers cooperate and are involved in everything from the cultivation and promotion of a region and its fruit to enjoying our fine spirits: sometimes tree growers, pickers, wine growers and brewers, and always Master Distillers.
It's this love of nature that leads to a passion for taste..
And it's this passion for taste and excellence that has always stimulated and continues to stimulate the talent of Biercée's Master Distillers. Since 1946, three great Master Distillers have passed on their passion and extraordinary know-how in our distillery.
From the highly rigorous selection of fruit, flowers and herbs, to the meticulous control of their maceration or fermentation in thermo-regulated vats, the perfect mastery of the art of distillation in stills, and right up to the careful ageing of our spirits, our Master Distiller uncompromisingly follows his passion for taste and the rules of the art of traditional distillation.
It's his passion, his talent and his know-how that allow him to patiently extract and delicately concentrate the best of nature.
Among the numerous tools required to elaborate our eaux-de-vie, gins and liqueurs, the Master Distiller's nose and palate are, without a doubt, the most important. Skilfully and continuously developed over the years, they are what allow the distiller to assess the aromas and flavours when he systematically tastes every distillate arriving in the heart of our stills, and thus guarantee the consistent quality of our products.
Being a Master Distiller at the Biercée Distillery is much more than a profession, it’s a way of life.
