At the tip of Africa the Atlantic and Indian ocean meet to create a biosphere unparalleled in the world, the majestic Table Mountain juts out of the earth in one of only 6 Cape floral kingdoms of the world. 


With over 9000 vascular plants species of which 69 percent are endemic, Fynbos "fine bush" is the back bone of of our tinctures, bitters and vermouth that we use in our cocktails. 

Our oceans boast over 600 types of seaweed of which only one is not edible, we source our plants through sustainable sources and incorporate the bounty of the ocean into our cocktails. 


The Chenin Blanc grape variety is a important part of our culture and the backbone of our award winning brandies, Cape Brandy has been the amazing ability to offer an array of flavours from dried fruits like peach, apricot and pear to tropical notes of pineapple, cherry and passion fruits.


We use these powerful flavours and aromas to create our unique vintage, classic and experiential cocktails.
