Ruby Gin is our fun gin. 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.
