vibrancy & Flair
Our first stop takes us to the famed, artisan suburb of Woodstock and a distillery that celebrates the rich fruits of Cape Town’s natural resources.
The use of indigenous local fynbos (The cape’s most prevalent plant species) coupled with a sheer passion for creating fine craft liquors results in a tasting experience to delight your taste buds. The way perfect start to your day. It’ll be a 12 o’clock somewhere already ;)
you can have it all & MORE
We head north toward the Stellenbosch mountains to discover a location with over 50 different gin tasting options. It’s an impressive set up and we’re not just talking about the selection.
We thought we’d throw in a viewing of a bunch of classic cars in the tasting room for you to marvel at while you sip on your umpteenth gin of the day. There is also a Big Cat Park here showcasing some of Africa’s most beautiful predators, make friends with a Lion, Leopard or Tiger if you will. (Optional Extra)
You’re hungry, we know!
Our final stop of the day takes us to a Tuscan garden setting restaurant and distillery. Christian Wilderer and his team at Ristorante Pappa Grappa specialize in a selection of wood-fired pizzas, flammkuchen, signature tapas and speciality gin cocktails.
Sit back and cheers to a day dedicated to celebrating the Cape’s ever-growing, ever-popular craft gin culture.
