Product Information – Cape Dry Gin

 

A bold, fragrant juniper-forward gin made in a classic dry style, but enhanced with floral and herbal botanicals from the unique Cape floral kingdom.

TASTING NOTES

This gin was awarded  a double-gold medal at the 2017 MichelAngelo International Wine and Spirits Awards

AROMA
Bright pine and lemon scents underscored by soft herbaceous fynbos and a surprising hint of sweet spice.
PALATE
Displays across the full juniper spectrum with sweet candied citrus and floral herb complexity from the mountain buchu
FINISH
Sweet honeybush and a hint of pine forest woodiness


BOTANICALS

The Cape Dry contains a carefully balanced blend of juniper, coriander, angelica root, honeybush, cardamom, lemon peel, and mountain buchus (Agathosma sp)


PERFECT SERVE

A balanced gin which adds something special to anyclassic recipe such as Negroni to Martini, the Cape Dry Gin is designed for our personal favourite, the Gin & Tonic, especially when enhanced with a garnish that brings out both the citrus and herbal notes of the gin. A Copa glass complements the fragrance in the glass.

FAVOURITE RECIPE

  1. Pour single or double measure of Cape Dry Gin over lots of ice (4-6 blocks)
  2. Add equal measure of Tonic (we recommend Fitch & Leedes)
  3. Garnish with twist of lemon peel freshly cut and a finger-length sprig of rosemary.

 

 


Note: Deep South Gins are made only with natural botanicals, including selected roots which prolong the life of colours and aromas. Exposure to bright light heat or oxygen, especially once the bottle is opened, will lead naturally to bottle aging and fading of some of the aromas and flavours over time . Best consumed within 2 months of opening and 4 months of purchase.
