 Small Batch South African Gin

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. 

 

Botanicals

Juniper / Coriander / Caraway / Iris Germanica Angelica / Fennel 

 

Recommended Garnishes

Slice of cucumber with a crack of black pepper or an orange slice with a sprig of rosemary or lemon or a slice of fennel. 

Blueberry Gin

This is our flagship gin. Four times distilled for smoothness and purity. We use 100 grams of locally produced blueberries for each bottle of gin. Often referred to as our Pink Lady, the colour and taste of this gin is produced by anthocyanins found in the blueberry, which are renowned for their health benefits.
