A fresh Gin with South African DNA.

When Johnny Neill found a dusty collection of bottles under the stairs of his grandma's house, his family legacy finally began to crystallize. Turns out they've been distilling Gin since 1762! With some guidance from his grandmother and plenty of mad-scientist-like enthusiastic experimentation he concocted an epic recipe. We're familiar with the usual suspects — juniper berries, coriander, dried citrus peels etc. But he took it a step further with the addition of the baobab fruit and cape gooseberry, providing an exotic African twist. Naturally, the exact recipe is a closely guarded secret. Hey, once you've garnered the kind of awards this Gin has, you need to keep your mouth shut. Oh, did I mention their century-old copper pot still, lovingly nicknamed "Constance?" If only stills could talk...

I bet this one would love to tell a tale about the special South African strain of aloe (called "Karoo" for all you botanists out there) they put in their Aloe and Cucumber Gin! This variation further evokes the landscape of South Africa — a nod to Johnny Neill's wife's homeland. But why stop there, when you can complement that juicininess with some fresh green earthiness of cucumber? Hey, no complaints there. Besides, we all know aloe is basically a panacea, so it's good for you as well!

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
