About this event

When you think back to the BCC for Luxembourg’s Christmas lunch what stands out? The convivial atmosphere? The inspiring speakers? The typically British crackers? Probably all of these but the first thing many of you say is the ‘KPMG gin bar’!


As we cannot hold the traditional BCC Christmas lunch, we decided to do things differently and we are delighted to announce The BCC’s 12 Days of Christmas: 12 online events between 03-18 December to keep you connected and informed, but also to have some festive fun.  To kick-off this cycle of events, what better than to host an ONLINE version of the famous gin bar.


We are, therefore, delighted to invite you to an Online Gin Tasting with World Gin Award Winners - Opyos Gin on Thursday 03 December at 19:00, generously sponsored by KPMG Luxembourg. The Opyos founders will provide a live Masterclass and walk us through their tasting set of Dry Gin, Navy Strength Gin and Sloe Gin with matching tonics (see below for details).


The first 50 BCC MEMBERS to register for the event can attend for FREE (one gin-tasting set per member) and registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Please provide full address details for delivery of gin-tasting set (only delivered within Luxembourg).


Opyos gin had started out as just a spontaneous idea amongst three friends in a bar and they had the feeling that they were onto something special. Their enthusiasm, innovative and creative ideas, along with the valuable insights from local industry experts, enabled them to craft a unique product full of character.


Originating from the 'Ernz Blanche' valley, on the East of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, Opyos Beverages is proud to be home in a rural region.  They observed that the once traditional transformation processes of these fruit into high proof beverages was about to disappear, which gave them the idea and desire of reviving a fading heritage.
