Hope Distillery's classic London Dry Gin is distilled the traditional way, with single malt vodka as its base. Distilled a fourth time to infuse seven of its carefully selected botanicals. Subtle and smooth finish with hints of citrus complementing the juniper and rosemary.
Distilled from local grain spirit and infused with eight botanicals, including organic Kapokbos and buchu. Kapokbos, also know as snowbush, is a wild sweet rosemary, adding the floral and herbaceous notes. The buchu is from our unique floral kingdom, which gives the blackcurrant and earthy flavours. Distilled in the heart of Cape Town with these local flavours, it's like "Africa in a Glass."
Blossom and hops gin is considered familiar yet unique. A juniper forward gin that celebrates both the earthiness of the hops and the charm of lime blossom. The aromatic hop is sourced from the Outeniqua Mountains in the Garden Route, and holds citrus flavours that balance the tea leaf notes of the lime blossom. Resulting in a smooth, delicate yet bold craft gin.
Kruger Family Wines - 2018 Old Vines Grenache (1x6 750ml)
Our newly bottled and recent released Piekenierskloof Old Vines Grenache is an effort to bring tribute to the very exclusive Piekenierskloof Old Vines Grenache, which has been described as hens teeth.
Partnering with Johan Van Zyl from the farm Heidedal in the high mountains of the Piekenierskloof Valley, we put much effort into this vineyard and winemaking to produce a very individually styled wine. The grapes are grown on 700 meters above sea level on decomposed granite soils and were picked beginning February from a mature 45 year old vineyard – planted in 1973.
In the winery we did 35% whole bunch natural fermentation which started slowly after three days of cold soak and completed in 7 days, then another 3 days on the skins after the wine was fermented dry. The wine spent 9 months in older large format – 400L and 500L French oak barrels before preparing ( with minimum intervention ) for bottling. The result is an honest wine and true to Piekenierskloof Old Vines Grenache – reflecting where it comes from.

In South African English, the word "muti" is derived from the Zulu word umuthi, meaning "tree," whose root is -thi. Muti has been fashioned by traditional healers since the dawn of Africa, to soothe the afflictions of our people, from the outlandish to the ordinary.
Inspired by botanical remedies and our African tradition, we have expertly crafted this citrus styled gin from only the freshest umuthi. Rich, complex and refreshing, let it soothe & rejuvenate the soul.
Hannibal is a peculiar red blend from Bouchard Finlayson in the Hemel en Aarde Valley consisting of 39% Sangiovese, 18% Pinot Noir, 17% Shiraz, 15% Nebbiolo, 5% Mourvédre and 5% Barbera. Sporting cherry and plum compote aromas on the nose, with a saline edge and clean leather adding depth of flavour. Subtle on the palate, offering rounded yet notable tannins, building towards the finish and dispersed with a bright freshness.
Moderately rich yet supple with intriguing perfumed dark cherry and wild berry with an espresso infused cinnamon spice adding to the appeal. Expertly balanced, it embodies elegance, but the tannins form neatly on a lengthy finish.
An exceptionally deep blend of blackberry, black cherry and bramble with subtle hints of forest floor, dark chocolate, aniseed and spicy tobacco. Velvety, medium-bodied palate with hints of fresh mint, cinnamon and perfume lingering on the finish.
