As a contemporary art freak and animation series producer, Dimitri’s weekly schedule was packed. He dreaded attending yet another event where they served bad wine or sugary soft drinks.
That’s when Dimitri started looking for a drink that could spice up his taste buds, without making his head spin. Since he couldn’t find one, he created it himself. He tried all kinds of combinations and ingredients. Until one day in November 2017 all these ingredients came together in a miraculously satisfying mix. "I felt like Willy Wonka, only without the crazy kids.”
Every weekend Dimitri made himself a personal bottle. Soon friends forced him to make bottles for them as well. His wife served it to her clients in her decoration store and GIMBER became a local success. Some people drove fifty kilometers or more to buy a bottle. In an online world, that’s saying something about commitment.
It wasn’t all sunshine, smiles and soda, but soon people with positive vibes started joining the project and together they built today’s GIMBER team. And guess what we’re so proud of? We heard that our Belgian long haul pilots drink GIMBER to stay sharp (and sober). We wonder how many successful holidays GIMBER contributed to.
Thanks for being part of our story.

LE CLOS DE LAURE
Le Clos de Laure is a family-run company that Marie-Laure, Jean-Luc and their son Jérôme are leading with passion.
“ We are food enthusiasts, we love to cook with fresh fruits and vegetables we find in our region: fig, apricots, peaches from Provence, roses from Grasse, citrus fruits from the French Riviera, courgettes from Nice, aubergines and bell peppers produced in a local farm...
Everything is handmade. Our fruits preserves are cooked in copper pans and stirred by hand with maximum 5 kg of fruits to preserve all their natural flavours and colours.
Our marmalades, vegetable or olive spreads, syrops and other recipes are 100 % natural.
We like to reproduce old recipes from our local traditions such as tapenades (an olive based products) or La Bagnetta, a sundried tomatoes cream with basil and chili pepper that fishermen in Nice used to cook in the old times.
To acknowledge 15 years of excellence and passion, we received in 2016 the title of Maîtres Artisans, and in 2017 we have been honored to be selected as Artisans Producteurs de Qualité by the Collège Culinaire de France. "
