Various Belgian gins were awarded a prize at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in March 2016. Among those even a gold medal winner: Ginius,designed by Frederik van Duüren from Oostduinkerke. Frederik may not a professional distiller, but he is a true gin co-gnoscente. And very entrepreneurial. “I like to do lots of different things,” says the entrepreneur and co-owner of clothing store Storms Fashion in Nieuwpoort. In the first gin he crafted, less than a year ago, Frederik incorporated a berry that is very typical of the area he lives in, the Sea Buckthorn Berry that grows in the dunes of his hometown Oostduinkerke.
