Production and Botanicals
It starts out with hand harvested and peeled limes and lemons from farmers and the gardens around our beautiful Hartbeespoort based Distillery. To balance the citrus flavours we add rose geranium grown in our own gardens. Blossoms from aloes endemic to the Magalies region are also added. Lastly, we use a secret botanical contributing to the unique flavour of this Gin. The aloe blossoms in this gin are from the Aloe Peglerae and Aloe Arborescens, which are endemic to the Magaliesberg area. The distillery has planted its own aloes – grown from seed – for harvesting of blossoms in the future and conservation of these species.
