Distillery De Molenberg
Charles Leclef is a representative of the fifth generation of the Van Breedam family, millers and brewers in Mechelen since the 17th century. In 1990, he took over and modernised the family brewery Het Anker, located on the site of the former beguinage hospital. In 2010 he set up a whisky distillery on the family farm 'Molenberg' in Blaasveld (municipality of Willebroek), with the idea of producing a single malt distilled from the wort of the Gouden Carolus Tripel beer. This is a good thing, because in the past the Van Breedam family milled and distilled cereals to make genever.
The name Gouden Carolus also takes us back several centuries to the time when Mechelen was the capital of the Burgundian Netherlands. It refers to the golden shield of Emperor Charles V, for whom the Mechelen Brewers' Guild brewed a special beer.
Folle Blanche 2022
Folle Blanche is a limited edition, made on the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the De Molenberg Distillery. Folle Blanche is a white grape variety used to produce cognac. The strong acidity of this grape is expressed in the distillates by refined and perfumed aromas. This whisky was first matured in bourbon and Het Anker casks, and then underwent a long three-year finish in cognac casks. These casks release ample wood and vanilla notes during maturation. On the nose there are surprising floral and fruity notes, complemented by a subtle finish of honey and leather.
