Filliers Distillery is set in the town of Bachte-Maria-Leerne, near Deinze. In this region their used to be some 25 distilleries, of which 2 survived. The company, still a family concern, is currently managed by the fifth generation Filliers.
Filliers is known as a producer of jenevers and fruit jenevers. Now Filliers also produces vodka and whisky. They produce Goldlys whisky, the first distillation is done in a column still and the second distillation in a pot still. Currently there are 2 expressions of Goldlys, Goldlys Owners Reserve (no age) and Goldlys 10 years old. The stocks of the 10 years old are almost gone and they are currently working on a whisky that has to take the place of this whisky.
Besides all the products that they produce for themselves, Filliers also sells malt wine, a grain based distillate of 46 and 47% alcohol. This product is sold in Belgium, the Netherlands and Canada to other distillers.
