History

Creation of the Claeyssens Distillery

19TH CENTURY: FROM MANUFACTORY TO FACTORY

The advent of the steam engine in the 1850s would change the way the site of the distillery was organized.

The Claeyssens family bought plots of land nearby to enlarge the distillery but also to build manors and villas, which can still be seen when navigating along the Deûle.
