Alain De Laet, CEO of the brewery, explains the choice for a gin: "Since the creation of Delirium Tremens in 1988, we have steadily expanded this portfolio. In the meantime, the Delirium family already counts 7 members: besides Tremens, there is also Delirium Red, Delirium Nocturnum, Delirium Argentum, Delirium Christmas, Deliria and Delirium Barrel-Aged (Limited Edition Black). We are very happy that we now also have a gin in our portfolio. Hopefully it will - just like Tremens - soon conquer the entire world.”
Brewery Huyghe, which likes to be off the beaten track, therefore deliberately chose a unique bottle shape for the Delirium Gin. They opted for a bronze-coloured glass bottle in the shape of a brewing kettle. A clear reference to the main ingredient of the gin and, according to specialists, never used before. The idea for the bottle originally came from Alexandre De Laet, son of current CEO Alain De Laet, but sometimes there is a gap between idea and reality. It turned out that the shape was not so easy to realize, but Huyghe looked for and found a solution with the Belgian specialist Axa Glass. The rest is history...
As of today, Delirium Gin is for sale (48 Euro) via the webshop on the brewery's website (www.brouwerijhuyghe.be) and also in liquor stores.
