Cape Town GinTheir award-winning range of gins evoke a beautiful sensation of creative coolness and timeless freshness. Distilled and bottled in the Cape, their gins celebrate the vibrant diversity and inspiring creative energy of Cape Town.

The journey begins with the distillation of a classic dry gin before adding unique botanicals indigenous to the Western Cape, to create gins of uncompromising quality, character and taste.

Nature Delivered in Abundance


The Cape Town Classic Dry gin pays homage to the gins first made centuries ago. Classic botanicals Juniper, dried orange peel, coriander, star anise, orris root, cardamom and cassia bark are used. Dried Rhino bush, a low growing plant indigenous and part of the Fynbos family is then added to the gin to create an African interpretation of a classic.


Inspired by the plant so steeped in heritage and healthful properties, the Cape Town Rooibos Red gin is infused with organic, handpicked rooibos to extract the essence of this plant, indigenous to the Cederberg region of the Western Cape. It’s vibrantly red in colour with the distinctive taste of rooibos.


The Pink Lady Gin is a delightful gin, distilled with Rose Geranium (Pelargonium), an indigenous multi-branched shrub, dried hibiscus flowers are ground to a powder and then added to the gin to create the wonderful salmon pink colour and a heavenly hint of Rosewater is added to compliment the natural rose scent of the geranium plant.
