Ponet Spirits is a house of spirits devoted to the production of exceptional alcohols. Honoring the family origins of the Ponet distillery, founded in Hasselt 1763, and following in the footsteps of the great distillers, Thierry Ponet and Matthieu Chaumont explore and revive a remarkable artisanal heritage. A harmonious communion of tradition, expertise and originality.

Thierry Ponet

Unicornity and the love of fine spirits are hereditary values in the Ponet family, and it’s Thierry’s turn to carry the torch and continue the Ponet legacy. Thierry has partnered with Matthieu Chaumont, the man behind ‘Hortense’, an established bar on the Brussels cocktail scene, and together they have launched Ponet Spirits.

Matthieu Chaumont

A fearless and dedicated barman, Matthieu opened Hortense Spirits & Cocktails, a place of pleasure and taste, a shop of curiosities in the heart of the Sablon in Brussels. As much a botanist as a chemist, he envisions the creation of a cocktail as a chef would a dish, according to seasons and quality of ingredients.
