As anyone of drinking age will be able to tell you, the gin craze has swept through South Africa, and Cape Town in particular, with an energy and creativity that has won the public over. The versatile spirit has proven to be the ideal medium to express the botanical and fruit flavours of South Africa - from rooibos tea to rose petals, single varietal citrus, spices and even fynbos leaves!

Introducing the Cape Town Gin Route, an interactive guided tour of distilleries in and around Cape Town city centre. Distilleries such as Hope on HopkinsMusgrave Gin, the Woodstock Gin CompanyNew Harbour DistilleryPienaar & Son and the Cape Town Gin Company are all onboard for the full-day tour. 

With food and drink a strong feature of most attractions in the Cape region, it was a natural progression to start The Cape Town Gin Route to celebrate the gins of the city. Says General Manager of the Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, Efi Ella, “As a proudly inner-city hotel, we saw this as an opportunity to celebrate the exceptional gin that is being produced locally – which, we would argue is even better that its international counterparts.”
