We operate in a beautiful environment that we want to help protect and preserve. Our distillery is located on the plateau of Fagnes, the widest space in our country where nature preservation is crucial. The Fagnes started forming approximately 10.000 years ago, at the end of the Ice Age, on impervious shale soils of a very ancient ridge.
Rain water, as well as water that emerges from the peaty soil, runs down the Fagnes in small streams which, by rejoining each others, end up creating massive rivers. Their numerous tributaries thus make their way trough the Fagnes, then the forests, in the direction of the valleys, often alternating from more peaceful sections to torrential passages. The deep wild valleys around the Hautes Fagnes are often of unparalleled beauty.
This magnificent environment constantly reminds us why we chose to work in a sustainable manner. We want to limit our environmental impact, reduce our carbon footprint as well as our waste disposal.

Waste and reusability
We minimize our waste whenever we can, at the same time on a sustainable basis, and also because waste disposal is expensive.

When possible, we only ship products when the truck is fully loaded.
