A contemporary gin distilled with organic Cape Fynbos

African Botanical Gin

Celebrating South Africa’s distinctive fynbos, Hope African Botanical Gin is distilled from local grain spirit and infused with eight botanicals.

These include hand-picked organic kapokbos, otherwise known as snowbush, and buchu from our unique floral kingdom.

Kapokbos is a wild sweet rosemary, which adds floral and herbaceous notes, and buchu is a small fragrant shrub that lends uniquely punchy blackcurrant notes. This is South Africa in a glass!

NOSE
Punchy fruit notes with hints of pine.
PALATE
Floral with blackcurrant and juniper.
FINISH
Complex finish which is subtly sweet.
