The classic pairing of gin and raw oysters is a quintessentially cool experience. Think about the combination of flavors. The floral and citrus notes of fresh hop gimlet gin cocktail complement beautifully the sweet and fresh taste of the oysters. A gimlet is easy to make: 4 parts fresh hop & 1 part sweet lime juic

Gin is great to pair with food either as a gin tonic or with a specific gin coctail. Our five different gins can be matched with a wide range of dishes going from seafood such as salmon, oysters and crab to cheeses and Belgian hors d'oeuvres. Here are some of our favorites Belgin gin food pairings:
- salmon gravlax, combining well with the smokiness of the salmon, alongside the dill and pepper in the marinade.
- a perfect complement to crab and firm white fish. Appetizers, such as crab cakes, work well, as do salads dressed with crab.
- Cheeses: Belgin gins are a beautiful partner to strong, hard cheeses like Manchego, or even Cheddar. It is also lovely when served with hot goat's cheeses such a smoked Chevre
- The pairing of a high quality craft gin with fresh oysters is heavenly. Gin can also be used to add a few drops over the oysters.
