African Gems Gin
Exotic and mysterious, Africa has been casting its spell since time immemorial. A continent of contrasts – both as the cradle of humankind and the last frontier – it has enchanted yesteryears’ explorers, authors and modern day filmmakers to discover all the mineral and visceral riches of this vast mainland.
True to its complex nature Africa has absorbed this attention but has always remained authentic and quintessentially untamed while continuing to gift the world with precious gems from mines and agriculture as we move through the 21st century. Similarly cherry, orange and mango trees, once from faraway countries, now blossom and bear fruit abundantly in the fertile sun-drenched soil of Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces, internationally acclaimed for its excellent quality produce as well as mining industry.
On the banks of the banks of the crystal-clear Olifants River the discerning master-distiller of African Gems Gin reserves only the most aromatic and succulent fruit from the crop for the closely guarded process that releases the essential oil. The alchemy of the master-distiller starts with the selection of approved non-GMO grain and a triple fractional distillation process, providing absolute command of the quality and attributes of the artisanal liquid. Once the spirit meets the exacting standards of the master-distiller and –craftsmen, the first fusion comes to pass between African Gems Gin and traditional juniper berries (hailed as an elixir for blood circulation and healthy skin). The fourth and last redistillation finally fuses this superior craft gin with the alluring essence from the cornucopia of luscious African grown fruit, evolving into the full collection of African Gems Gins.
Each gin is uniquely bold in taste, yet underpinned with the classic fragrance of juniper and unparalleled in quality, making every one of the limited hand bottled batches a rare gem to be discovered and cherished forever.
