Thomas Gin & Cameo Vermouth

Thomas Gin and the Cameo Vermouths are signature recipes of master distiller Thomas Cuyvers.

Vermouth
After years of searching for good vermouth recipes, Thomas stumbled by accident upon two special herbs. These herbs, only to be found in the south of Europe, turned out to be the missing link for providing the vermouth recipe with its typical flavour.
The Cameo Vermouth semi -sweet red no. 11 contains, among other things, orange, potentilla erecta and clove.
Iris’ root, cinnamon and dandelion are some of the accents in the Cameo Vermouth semi – dry white no. 17.

Thomas Gin no 21:
Being a Negroni lover, master distiller Thomas looked for a new gin to further refine the Negroni recipe. The new gin for the Negroni turned out to be great for mixing gin & tonics.

Thomas Gin is undoubtedly one of the best gins on the market. Once you’ve tasted it, you’ll always be able to recognize its flavour because of its unique botanicals.

Made in Heaven
It has a clear juniper aroma. A powerful pallet of flavours explodes in your mouth. Gale gives it an intense aftertaste and rosemary and teaberry provide sweet accents. Cardamom and bergamot give it a fruity touch. The skilled sommelier may recognize the sublime accents of unreleased herbs. On their own they’re delicious. Combined Thomas Gin no. 21 & both Cameo Vermouth’s they’re a match made in heaven.

Antwerps Elixirke

“Antwerp is at the brink of a new Golden Age.”

The rich history of Antwerp is captured in this golden Elixir.
32 botanicals age in oak casks to become the most delicious drink in the world.
We’ve made an elixir, based on an old family recipe, in a new style.

The recipe has been carefully composed with touches of, among others, ginger, lime, orange, vanilla, anis and Iris’ root. We’ve also added special mountain wormwood which gives Sterkstokers’ Cameo Vermouths its special accent. The extensive rainbow of flavours allowed us to lower the sugar%. With its soft alcohol percentage – 21% – the Antwerp Elixirke is both an original and surprising aperitif and delicious digestive. In short: less alcohol and less sugar, but more flavours.

Jack Fox – single cask Dark Rum

Using all that passion and experience, Sterkstokers developed a unique Dark Rum.  Jack Fox is a masterpiece: aged in oakwood Limousin-casks which first held the Cameo Vermouth no. 11. Unique because of the soft accents of caramel and vanilla, combined with powerful wood accents. The presence of the red Cameo Vermouth from the sides of the cask ensure an intense aftertaste as well as its deep colour. Jack Fox is an exclusive rum, each 220 litre cask has its own taste. Each bottle is numbered by hand.
Drinking it neat is very enjoyable and in a Belgian version of Dark & Stormy each cocktail aficionado falls in love at once.
