If you simply can’t wait to open a bottle you can either buy one at our tasting room during the week (there’s normally someone here, but feel free to phone us at 071 896 2563) or on Saturdays.
We are also stocked by a number of liquor stores which you can find here.
Incendo Distillery is the only place in Hartbeespoort you can do a Gin, rum, brandy or whisky tasting and view a working distillery. Our tastings are presented on Saturdays 11 till 5. No bookings are required for groups of less than 8.
We can do tastings on weekdays as well – but because of our production schedule, it is neccesary that you contact us before hand for a weekday tasting.
Because of North West liquor law that does not allow for bottle sales on Sundays our tasting room is not open on Sundays.
We don’t require bookings for groups of less than 8 people on Saturdays. If you are 8 or more it is a good idea to contact us beforehand so we can ensure we have seating available for you.
Week day tastings require bookings as well.
You can view our tasting room menu here. At the tasting room you can select various tasting options, and pay the bill afterwards.
At Incendo Distillery you can enjoy:
We present different tastings with mixers and also do chocolate pairings and macaroon pairings.

Directions R511 from Pretoria:
If you enter Hartbeespoort on the R511 from Pretoria – Do NOT use the first Gravel road by Hartmark. Continue on the R511 until it turns right at a fourway crossing (a Total Garage on your right) – this road is the R511 that goes toward Brits. Follow the road for approximately 2km. You will see a school on your left, followed by Makalani Bird Park. Right accross from Makalani on the right side of the road is a gravel road, turn right onto this road and follow for 800m. It forms a T-Junction, at which point you turn right and immediately left. Incendo Disitllery will be on your left.
It really depends on how much you enjoy our hard work! A typical tasting, cocktail and tour takes 1 hour. Some people spend 3 hours here, and others finish within 40 minutes!
