Gin has experienced extraordinary growth around the world in recent years. These trends are being reflected in South Africa, where a phenomenal increase in the popularity of craft gin is being experienced.
Driven by the quest for authenticity and provenance, local distillers have crafted their own distinctive South African interpretations of this spirit.
Unique local ingredients such as Karoo botanicals, buchu, rooibos, kalahari truffles, wild dagga, honey bush and devil’s claw have all found their way into original and exciting expressions of this increasingly popular and versatile drink.
