Elixir d‘Anvers, more than 150 years of tradition

19 March 1863. A house in one of Antwerp’s peripheral municipalities. At the first break of day, after years of research, François-Xavier de Beukelaer – a learned doctor and apothecary – discovers the recipe for a wonderfully invigorating liqueur: Elixir d’Anvers.

Elixir d’Anvers soon became famous for its remarkable digestive and wholesome characteristics. Thanks to its exceptional quality Elixir d’Anvers has been awarded dozens of medals and certificates of honour, not only in Europe but also in Australia, Africa and the United States. One of the most noteworthy certificates traces back to Boulogne-sur-Mer, France (1887), and was signed by Louis Pasteur.

Elixir d’Anvers is still prepared according to tradition, using numerous plants and herbs from all around the world, which give the beverage its unique flavour.

FX de Beukelaer can proudly call itself one of the oldest and most famous liqueur distilleries in Belgium!
