About the Houblones range

Houblonesse, that’s customization. You can’t compare our artisanal confectionery to the offerings of an industrial cookie manufacturer. Handcrafted, from on the hop field when harvesting the hop shoots, to baking the caramel wafers, to finishing and packaging splatters and gin bottles. And all by people who have the opportunity to develop their talents through these activities.

Houblonesse is craftsmanship in its purest form. Confectionery is baked by hand, bottles and goblets are labelled and finished by hand. A small deviation in color or shape represents the charm of our products.

Houblonesse is an own brand of custom company Sowepo vzw from Poperinge

We like to make your life easy. Together with Hannah Van Ongevalle, we’ve put together 10 -if we do say so ourselves- super tasty cocktails for you. Together we’ll turn you into the world’s best bartender in no time 😉 .

No! With us you will not find any E-numbers on the list of ingredients of our confectionery, just like traditional products should. Of course this has an impact on the shelf life of our regional products. But we assure you one thing: our regional products are SO tasty that you will have consumed them long before their shelf life expires 😊

Drinks :

Our spirits ( Hopscheutenjenever and Joie de Houblonesse ) have an unlimited shelf life due to their high alcohol content.

The ready-to-drink coffees have a shelf life of 24 months unopened. After opening, you can store it for another 6 months at a cool temperature.

Eggnog Has a shelf life of 24 months after production date. It is best to keep these in the fridge after opening.

Confectionery :

You will not find any E numbers in our caramel waffles and splatters. They are manufactured without preservatives that extend shelf life. That is why they have a maximum shelf life of 30 days from the date of production.

Caramel sauce has a shelf life of 6 months from production date.

Our spirits are packaged in beautiful stone jars with a sealable cork. You can give them a grateful second life as a stylish vase or table decoration. Glassware is endlessly recyclable. So your empty bowl of eggnog can be recycled without any problem via the glass ball, or serve as a storage jar in your kitchen. The plastic bags in which splatters and wafers are packed can be sorted at PDM. The outer boxes go with the paper and cardboard. This is how we make the waste mountain a little smaller together.
