Bruin Stoopke is traditionally a jenever from the range of the old Cockney's Distillery in Ghent. Already in 1897 he won a gold medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
Contains 20% barley malt wine. After a double pot still distillation in our small kettle, Bruin Stoopke spends another year in oak barrels.
Since when Goeie Seeve has been on the market is unclear. Jules De Brabandere already advertised it in 1919 with his distillery from Ghent. His distillery later became the property of Achille Hoste's Cockney's Distillery.
Made from a mixture of barley and rye, of which no less than 63% malt wine is used, this jenever matures in a single barrel and is never completely emptied. As a result, there are remains of jenever from 1983 when the barrel was first used.
Hoppe Belle is actually an IPA genever in which we use 4 hop varieties. We use 2 from our own region (Kent Golding and Hallertau) and 2 citra hops from the US. Hoppe Belle is a more complex variant of the Hopjenever from 1977, always made for Van der Schueren.
Little malt wine (4%) to preserve the young, fresh character and no wood aging. Wheat is the basis for the alcohol. The fresh hop cones are macerated in the finished jenever for 8 hours.
A very local Aalst variant.
Oilsjters Babbelwater has become the traditional drink during Aalst Carnival and was born in 1996.
No wood aging, but a maceration of native herbs that are nicely absorbed by the whole. Just 15% malt wine, which makes it still a young jenever.
