Copperhead gin

Copperhead Gin

The spiritual father of the Copperhead gin is Yvan Vindevogel, a successful entrepreneur in pharmaceuticals and owner of Hotel Damier. With Copperhead gin come three aromatic 'herbal blends' in a pipette bottle. Every bottle gives another function to the Copperhead. The 'Aperitivum' arouses appetite, the 'Energeticum' gives energy and the 'Digestivum' helps with digestion.

In October 2015, a second gin was launched, Copperhead Black Batch.  SInce 2018, you can taste the Copperhead 'The Gibson Edition'.

In May 2021, Yvan Vindevogel launches the non-alcoholic Copperhead gin.
