The Old Packhouse Distillery Handcrafted Gin

A small batch handcrafted gin distillery aimed at producing exemplary gin. We craft award winning gin from all natural and locally produced ingredients, to bring you a taste of nature's best with every sip. Our gin is a clear, distilled spirit with dominant traditional and African botanical flavors of juniper, flowers, and locally sourced fruits.

Crystal Gin

Our Crystal Gin a triple distilled London Dry Gin. In the fourth distillation we use the vapor infusion technique through the botanicals which marries the subtle subtle flavours into the pure spirit. This multiple distillation ensures a perfectly smooth gin. None of the botanicals are predominant, thus the taste is that of a pure gin.
