Tastings & Tours

We offer tours of the distillery and product tastings.  Bookings are essential as we are a working distillery and certain options may not be available.  Different options are

  • Public tours and tastings
  • Private tours and tastings
  • Scheduled events

PUBLIC TOURS AND TASTINGS

This is a tasting of our products. There is an optional distillery tour beforehand.

DISTILLERY TOUR:

The distillery tour is complimentary if you intend to do a tasting afterwards.  During the tour you will walk around the distillery, learn a little about how spirits are made, and depending on what is available in the distillery at the time, see a real distillation or fermentation taking place, sample the aromas and flavours of our gin recipe library, and have a small taste of what is in the various barrels and tanks.

Duration 20-30 minutes

PRODUCT TASTINGS:  Although you may get a sneak preview of some of our products during the distillery tour, the tastings allow you to explore the products we make to their fullest.  Currently we only offer gin tastings of our two signature gins. You can do the tasting on your own, but most people opt for a guided tasting where you get to  build two 'perfect serve' gin cocktails, using a selection of tonics and garnishes to suit your palette.

We build the layers from tasting neat spirits through to a full balanced cocktail as we explore the way in which gin, mixer (usually tonic) and garnishes work together to create a perfect serve G&T, that delights all of the  senses: taste, aroma, visual appeal, touch and even hearing (that clink of perfect ice on glass!).

Duration 30-60 minutes depending on how slowly you sip....!

After the tastings, a variety of cocktails may be purchased at the bar if you are inclined to linger.

Tastings R75:00 per person. Tours are complimentary (and optional)

  • Saturday:      11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (bookings preferred)
  • Wednesday to Friday:  11:00 until 4:00 p.m. (bookings essential on weekdays please)
  •  We regret no tastings and tours on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday
