Ruby is a flavourful aromatic gin made in a contemporary floral style. Heady scents of rose and lavender blend with the deeper, darker fruity notes of honeybush lifted by the exotic scent of hibiscus. The colour is derived from an infusion with hibiscus flowers. This is a gin that invites exploration and is superb with flavoured tonics, and abundant fruit for delicious cocktails with a contemporary style.
Ruby was awarded a Gold medal by the South African Women's Wine and Spirits Association in 2018.
Ruby Gin is available in 750ml, 500ml (gift box), 200ml and 40ml sizes
Top notes of rose and citrus on a scented herbaceous lavender background, spiked with sweet spice.
Juniper and lavender combine on the mid-palate, encased in Turkish Delight flavours from the pelargonium. Complexity and density provided by the honeybush and spices

Note: Deep South Gins are made only with natural botanicals, including selected roots which prolong the life of colours and aromas. Exposure to bright light heat or oxygen, especially once the bottle is opened, will lead naturally to bottle aging and fading of some of the aromas and flavours over time . Best consumed within 2 months of opening and 4 months of purchase.
