What we make

As a small, but well-equipped distillery, Deep South is able to manufacture and bottle almost any kind of spirit.  We experiment continuously with processes, ingredients, and recipes as a way of mastering both the science of craft spirits and the art.
Not all products that we create make it to the market: some are not quite what we want, some would not be commercially viable, some would mean unsustainable use of botanicals, while others are for limited release , for contract distillation or for use in tours and workshops in the distillery itself.
But while you might not be able to get them in your local shop, you might be able to pick them up direct from the distillery!
Our focus at the moment is on white spirits, mainly gin, rum and vodkas. And there is the odd schnapps, liqueur, or flavoured vodka that may appear from time to time!   We plan to do limited releases of some aged spirits in 2020.
Our production consists of:
  • Spirits we make bottle under our own brand
  • Corporate gift boxes, gift packs, garnishes and other promotional items
  • Spirits we make for other brands (Contract distillation)

Spirits Bottled
under the Deep South label

Cape Dry Gin

The Cape Dry Gin is a beautifully balanced, juniper-forward gin made in a classic dry gin style, but with additional botanicals grown and harvested in the Cape Peninsula. These mountain buchus add lovely herbal and floral aromas and flavours.

This gin was awarded a Double Gold medal at the Michelangelo International Wines and Spirits Awards in 2017 – two months before we officially opened our doors to sell our products and decently attained Gold at the 2019 Sommelier Trophy awards.
Cape Dry is available in 750ml, 500ml (gift box), 200ml and 40ml sizes

Ruby Gin

This gorgeous ruby-coloured gin is our play-time gin.

Made in a floral style, and infused with the beautiful colours and subtle aromas of hibiscus, this gin invites you to be creative in your choices of mixers and garnishes.  It is extraordinary when used with fruit and a lite tonic or soda, and us bold enough to blend perfectly with flavoured tonics and ginger ale.
The Gin was awarded gold in 2018 by the SA Women’s Wine and Spirits Awards.
Available in 750ml, 500ml (gift box), 200ml and 40ml sizes
