I am from Toulouse, France and I have been the head bartender of a Gin Bar for the past 2 years. When I'm not running the marathon, I mix and experiment with cocktail creations and gin macerations. I have acquired a deep knowledge of Gin through my professional training in mixology.
Where you'll be
Rendez-vous at De Haus, the first bar in Brussels dedicated to Gin & Tonic, and quoted many times in various Design magazines in Belgium. De Haus' particularity also lies in the quality of its products. We have access to a garden of Eden located 10km from Brussels where we grow more than 1000 varieties of fruit (North American Mango, Siberian Kiwifruit, Canada Cherry...) that we use in our creations.

I gave this review 3 stars because the drinks were fantastic and Thomas was very friendly and knowledgeable. However, I do think that the description for this experience needs to be changed. From the description I understood we would be taught how to serve a G&T and how to select them. We did not serve anything and we just smelled the different gins he had. I also went in expecting it to be like a wine tasting or a whiskey tasting where you actually sample the different types, regions, etc. and talk about the differences. Like I said, here, we just smelled them from the bottle. Also, this experience will be cheaper if you go in person for it instead of booking it through airbnb. Overall, this bar is a fantastic place to go for the actual drinks!
