What we make
Deep South Distillery is able to manufacture and bottle almost any spirit. Currently, and for most of 2018 we will be focusing on gin, rum and vodka in the bulk of our production runs, although we cannot rule out the occasional experiment here and there!
As a craft distillery, we prefer to ferment our own alcohol directly from the raw materials such as molasses and grain, although like many other distilleries we also use bulk spirits bought in from suppliers for some products.
During the first half of 2018 we will be releasing another gin and some other interesting spirits. Pop down to the distillery, or follow us on Facebook and you might be fortunate enough to get a preview tasting of whats coming up!
We also manufacture and bottle spirits on contract for third parties.

Cape Dry Gin
The Cape Dry Gin is a beautifully balanced, juniper-forward gin made in a classic dry gin style, but with additional botanicals grown and harvested in the Cape Peninsula. These mountain buchus add lovely herbal, slightly floral aromas and flavours.
This gin was awarded a Double Gold medal at the Michelangelo International Wines and Spirits Awards in 2017 – two months before we officially opened our doors to sell our products
This gorgeous ruby-coloured gin is our play-time gin. Made in a floral style, and infused with the beautiful colours and subtle aromas of hibiscus, this gin invites you to be creative in your choices of mixers and garnishes.
