St Cruyt be Thy Name
BELGIN St Cruyt
The world's first Abbey Dry Gin
Whether with tonic, as a martini, or gimlet, the unique and complex taste of Belgin St Cruyt is an ideal basis for both classics and more eccentric cocktails. We brought together for the first time a harmoniously balanced complexity of the four main botanical taste groups:
- Fruit: different forest berries provide an inviting nose
- Flower: a blend of various flowers such as lavender flower
- Citrus: we use both traditional citrus such as lime, coriander and cardamom with more exotic citrus such as verbena leaves and marjoram
- Spice: various juniper berries are combined with classical abbey herbs such as rosemary, sage, thyme and angelica root
Gin and Tonic:
Classic: 1 part Belgin St Cruyt / 2 parts tonic
For a connaisseur Gin & Tonic, you could also do a ratio of 1 part St Cruyt and 1 part Tonic.
We prefer more neutral tonics as a canvas for all the various flavours to be present. Fever Tree Indian Tonic or Schweppes Original are excellent choices.
For a more flavorsome experience, we can also recommend Schweppes Pink Pepper tonic as a great pairing with Belgin St Cruyt
Given the quality of Belgin St Cruyt, it is fine to drink it without botanicals. Discover the harmonious layered taste with Fever Tree Indian tonic and sip for pure enjoyment. Nothing else comes close!
Here a few more botanicals that work excellent:
- Juniper berries and garnish of lemon
- lime and sage
Devotedly handcrafted with 50 perfectly balanced botanicals inspired by Belgian Abbey Herb gardens.
