Brasserie Cantillon

Grand Cru Bruocsella


Grand Cru Bruocsella
Brussels, Belgium

A single-vintage lambic, aged in old barrels for three years. Unusually, this is not refermented in the bottle, resulting in a still beer that is a little richer, fuller and more mellow in style. A rich shade of gold, it offers warm, honeyed notes and a deep, savoury complexity. A beer that will reward drinkers for many years to come.

Please note there is a limit of one bottle per person.



Undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest breweries, Brasserie Cantillon was founded in Brussels in 1900 and has been considered one of the finest producers of traditional lambic ever since.

Today, fourth generation brewer Jean Van Roy is at the helm and the brewery has never been in safer hands. While working with the utmost respect for tradition, Jean has refused to stand still, converting the brewery to organics and continuing to release a dizzying number of new cuvées, which include fascinating collaborations with some of Europe’s great vignerons.

In essence, the beers are made the same way they always have been here. Wild fermented in open top vats and aged in old wooden casks, lambics of different ages are often blended and sometimes infused with berries, stone fruit, grapes, marc or hops, producing pure, vibrant beers of kaleidoscopic complexity.
