and on the 11th Day of Christmas...


You definitely know that I am a lover of the Gin... And what is a day closer to Christmas, without adding some Hope on Hopkins Gin to the list.

An artisanal distillery in the heart of Cape Town that prides itselfs on truly crafting its own spirits. Making their gin from scratch themselves, so that the consumers know exactly where all the carefully sourced ingredients come from. 

Using South African malted barley as the base, which is cooked & fermented over several days & then finally triple distilled to make the base neutral spirit for their London Dry & Salt River gins. Distilling on the 4th time allows the alcohol vapours to infuse through the selected botanicals.

The one that I liked most, is inspired by the flavours from the Mediterranean, a Gin made from a Triple Distelled Grape Spirit, the Hope on Hopkins Mediterranean makes the cut. Infused with olives, rosemary, basil, thyme, & cardamon with hints of citrus & juniper. (So more like the 'savoury' gin type.)
