Fillers Dry Gin 28 - 50cl - 46% ABV
To start from the very beginning takes us back all the way to 1792 when the first master distiller was born, Karel Lodewijk Fillers. Born into his Belgium based family farm it was not until he was older that his interest grew in Genever. His passion grew so much so that his love for Genever passed on to the rest of his family, which continues to be in their line of work to this very day. Having met the current members – we can vouch for this. They are both passionate and nice, yet equally humble!

On the nose there is a strong citrus aroma supported by coriander, though a juniper backbone holds strong. Fresh, sweet cardamom notes also whisper. This all comes through on the palate, with a citrus that works alongside the juniper, which is gentle and mild - touched with a slightly sweeter edge that leads to a dry finish.
It’s a relatively classic, understated gin but not because it doesn’t deliver. It’s tasty and well rounded, yet without a distinct tone that means it’s often (and wrongly) overlooked.Read Gin Foundry's full review here: Filliers Dry Gin 28
