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.
Gouden Carolus Whisky Infused
Gouden Carolus Imperial Dark was enriched by an infusion of Gouden Carolus Single Malt whisky. The result is a unique beer: powerful and full-bodied, with subtle touches of vanilla, oak and chocolate. An imperial brew to cherish and enjoy in moderation.
