Illugin is a Belgian gin, created and inspired by two friends, Jonathan Polen and Andy Bats. Jonathan is founder of Salito Beach – one of the most famous beach bars in Blankenberge – and he is well known for his delicious cocktails. Andy is a freelance entrepreneur focused on product management and operational lead. These combined competences are the ideal mix for a super team and so the forces became united.
Their idea was to introduce a new gin. Not so easy these days as some hundreds of thousands gins already exist, all with their own uniqueness and flavours and above all coming from all over the world. So for sure it had to be a special one. A real eye catcher with an extraordinary taste. And so the quest started…
After experimenting for several months with a lot of different botanicals, the final mixture was found and a new gin was born.
We proudly present you Illugin, a sweet magical colour changing gin. Now already available in two versions: Blueberry & Matcha.
Is it really that special one?
Illugin contains personally selected ingredients but the most important ingredient is a flower. A very special flower that reacts to sour fluids such as lime juice but also to tonic.
Illugin brings a magical colour changing spectacle in your glass and it triggers your nose and tongue with his fresh and sweet taste.
