This is a unique hand crafted gin which captures the essence of the wild oceans that surround us here in the Western Cape of South Africa. A key botanical is Laminaria Pallida Kelp, giving it a distinct savoury flavour and aroma reminiscent of a walk on the beach, after a classic Cape storm. The kelp is harvested by free-diving for it, by the distillers. The unusual green/gold colour of the gin is derived from infusing kelp in part of the gin, then carefully blending that back to ensure a consistent flavour profile. This colour is completely natural and may vary in intensity from batch to batch. It may also fade slightly over time. Distilled in small batches using a grape base spirit from Hout Bay, South Africa.
As a traditional Gin and Tonic using good Indian Tonic Water, a large block of ice, sprigs of fresh rosemary and a brined olive or 2. If olives are not to your thing, then replace with a ribbon of cucumber and black peppercorns, otherwise a slice of lemon always works well. It also makes a delicious non-traditional martini.
