Bruggeman acquires DBBS
DBBS was established in 1993 in Huy. Over the years, the company specialised itself in the production of aperitifs made from fresh, hand-pressed fruit juices. The ZiZi Coin Coin brand is the flagship brand of DBBS, which extended its product range with such brands as Couille de Singe or Monkey Balls. DBBS operates in the Belgian market and in the neighbouring countries, including France and the Netherlands. The quality and exceptional taste of these local, Belgian brands are a real asset to the ‘local heroes’ range.
Bruggeman acquires Inspirits Premium Drinks
Following this acquisition, Bruggeman adds Joseph Guy, Jachtbitter, Café Marakesh, Gorter Jenever, and Sonnema Berenburg (H. Jansen) to its portfolio. Bruggeman now has representation in the Benelux countries as well as a leadership position in the jenever category, with such brands as Peterman, Smeets and Hertekamp in Belgium and Luxembourg and Olifant, Goblet, and Gorter in the Netherlands.
Bruggeman emerges as a real challenger in the alcoholic beverages market in the Benelux countries.
We continue to invest in our jenever segment by acquiring the Dutch jenever brands Olifant, Smeets, and Goblet from Wenneker. This integration also includes the acquisition of the Eliterna brand and 50% of the shares of Inspirits, enabling us to establish a presence on the Dutch market and become a real challenger on the Benelux market.

Moreover, Bruggeman signs a cooperation agreement with the Dutch company Inspirits, for the distribution of Poliakov, Label 5, Saint James and Porto Cruz in the Netherlands. As a result, Bruggeman’s operations now cover the entire Benelux.
