About Biercée Bitter

Biercée Distillery draws inspiration from its 70 years’ experience in distilling herbs, plants and fruits to develop the first Belgian fruity bitter: Biercée Bitter! This drink takes its bitterness from the careful distillation of gentian, Seville oranges and angelica, supplemented by roasted cocoa beans and coffee specifically roasted for the Distillery. Its fruitiness comes from a clever combination of citrus and fresh red fruits. And so the master distillers have created a totally natural and harmonious bitter that is perfectly balanced.

Love of Bitter

There’s no doubt about it: Belgians are crazy about bitter flavours. Just think of his fondness for beers and her chocolate mania. Not to mention the passion for coffee and Gin & Tonic! That is why there is a clear culinary preference for bitterness and yet to date, Belgian producers do not have a strong tradition of making bitters. Bitter, an aromatic spirit based on plants and fruits, which bartenders traditionally serve as an aperitif. However, all of that is changing now.

The bottle is designed to highlight the drink in all its simplicity. Pure, clean lines further enhance the bright red colour! The subtle decoration is a wink to the Belgian history of Art Deco. At the same time, the typical surrealism is reflected in the figures on the inside of the bottle. The characters on the bottle are gradually revealed as the bitter is poured out. Who or what are you today? A wolf in a suit or an elegant hind?
