The Belgian Owl
Belgian Single Malt Whisky made with Belgian-grown barley
Our company, ‘the Owl distillery’, was founded in 2004. there are three of us in the company. each one of us does his bit:
Our objective is to diversify our crop-growing through turning to best account the creation of an excellent Belgian Single Malt Whisky crafted on barley grown in Belgium (Hesbaye), based on environmentally aware agriculture.
Our philosophy is the traditional honest-to-goodness of our product, creating work around us, for the well-being of a life lled with wisdom.
Our emblem, the owl, reflects our philosophy since, in ancient Greece, this bird stood for intelligence and wisdom. practical know-how is necessary for making our Single Malt Whisky and paying due respect to the soil, source of our quality and the tasting is all about discernment.
Whisky by definition means a minimum of 3 years of ageing in oak barrels.
Our first barrel was led on 29 October 2004. We obtained our first ‘Belgian Owl’ Single Malt Whisky on 30 October 2007 (official tapping on 31/10/2007).
Our Single Malt Whisky has been available in all the better stores and merchants since november 2008.
We booked our first sales in december 2004 via our internet site, www.belgianwhisky.com.
On 17 november 2007 we started to deliver to the owner the bottles reserved in december 2004, drawn from the first barrel.

The visitor centre
In the midst of our production plant, in the heart of Hesbaye, we have set aside a space to welcome our visitors. We are well aware of the interest that such a project can excite, from the growing of the barley to its final processing into Single Malt Whisky. This being the case we have made certain that our visit centre will be an innovating centre for all to discover.
