Conservation and sustainability are core values of the GINSMITH brand. The farm and distillery are off the grid, being powered by the sun and we use pristine spring water which is gravity fed from the mountain.
GINSMITH gins are ‘slow’ gins. At Tygerkloof distillery, home to GINSMITH, we handcraft our gins in the time honoured, traditional way, using a 300l copper alembic still, over flame.
We hand harvest botanicals from our immediate terroir – kapok (wild rosemary), mpephu (African Sage) and buchu (Agathosma Betulina). Our ruby grapefruit is sourced from a neighbouring farm, and we import our juniper and orris from Tuscany.
We offer educational tasting and training sessions to our clients. We have held many successful trainings in restaurants and lodges around the country.
