Lindemans Brewery and De Moor Distillery present the fruit of their collaboration: the first 2 Lindemans premium distilled gins. A premiere since the two gins have the special feature of having been made with Old Kriek distillate. First, these bottles will only be sold at Lindemans Brewery and at Streekproductencentrum Halle (Poststraat 30 in 1500 Halle), in numbered bottles as a limited edition.
The clear Lindemans Premium Gin is the result of a infusion of 15 well-chosen botanicals and a distillate of the delightful Old Lindemans Kriek CuvÃ©e RenÃ©. The latter is brewed with whole cherries, according to Belgian lambic tradition. The gin itself is double distilled in small quantities (a batch of up to 250 litres) in a copper cauldron or alembic. Thereafter, each bottle is filled with this unique gin and corked and sealed by hand.
The red Lindemans Premium Gin Red is distilled with the same process as the clear gin. Its bright red colour is due to the pure sour cherry juice added to the Oude Kriek CuvÃ©e RenÃ© Lindemans. This gin is double distilled in a copper kettle and hand bottled. According to Manuel Wouters, this gin is best experienced as a cocktail, for example mixed with prosecco.
