Zombie #9

Zombie #9 Cocktail

The most well-known origin story of the cocktail’s name suggests that mixologist Donn Beach created the Zombie in an attempt to cure the hangover of one of his regulars.

When Beach later asked how his cure had worked, the customer allegedly said it had made him feel like a ‘zombie.’

The Zombie is a typical Tiki-style cocktail made with rum, fruit juice and sweetener. Strong, with big flavours, this cocktail is a party in a glass all by itself.

Rum Old Fashioned

Rum Old Fashioned cocktail

The Old Fashioned is a classic cocktail traditionally made with Whiskey. But a robust aged rum like the Deep South Amber, with its subtle caramels and smoky finish, mimic the whiskey while adding warming undertones. Carefully prepared here in a leisurely classic understated, time-honoured way.


Koperbobbejaan Cocktail

The Brass Monkey cocktail traditionally combines rum and orange.

Our Koperbobbejaan (copper baboon) steps up the game a little with a more complex mix of flavours and is a slightly ironic tribute to the troop of baboons that regularly try to raid our distillery, overturn our dustbins and play tag on the metal roof!

Cuba Libre

Cuba Libre Cocktail

Supposedly attributable to a US Army caption stationed in Havana in the 1900s, who added lime and Coca-Cola to his rum and toasted his Cuban comrades by saying “Por Cuba Libre” – “to a free Cuba”, this drink has become a worldwide favourite. It needs a full-bodied rum to stand up to the sweet Coke – with the fresh lime adding an essential role in bridging the gap between tropical rum and effervescent, spicy-sweet Coke.

Cape Norwester

Cape Northwester Cocktail

Our variation on the classic Dark ’n Stormy cocktail traditionally made with dark rum and ginger beer. A strong heady rum cocktail. The secret is a really good spicy ginger beer that complements caramel notes and smoky finish of the Amber Rum.
