Created in 1953 for the film Casino Royale, the original receipe

6cl of BRUSSELS gin

3cl of BRUSSELS vodka

1,5cl of Lillait

Combine all the ingredients, add a orange and lemon rind (zeste/zest).

Ginger gin tonic

A simple gin tonic is good, but at the BRUSSELS DISTILLERY we like to push things a bit further. Why not test a variant of that inconic cocktail ...

6cl of BRUSSELS gin

1 cl of Ginger Syrup
Tonic Water


In a rocks glass or Collins glass, add gin and syrup, then add ice, and top with tonic.

Garnish (garnissez/versier) with a lime wedge (rondelle de citron/ citroenwig).

Making the ginger syrup

You can either buy ginger syrup or make it yourself. 

1 cl of ginger syrup is:

1 cl of water

1 cl of sugar

0,5 gr of peeled ginger (gingembre pelées/geschilde gember)

Bring the water and the sugar to the boil. 

When it boils, add the peeled ginger for 15 minutes. 

Filter our the ginger pieces. 

French 75

A cocktail right out of the 20ies, named after a famous cannon used during the Great war.

A very refreshing mix between a spirit and sparkling wine.

6 cl of BRUSSELS Gin
3 cl fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
3 cl of champagne
3 gr of sugar


variation: use 5cl of apple cider instead of champagne


Pour (verser/schenk) the lemon juice and the sugar over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake and put it into a martini glass. Top with champagne. Garnish (garnissez/versier) with a twist of lemon. Close your eyes, image you are in the 1920 and drink a sip.
