OUR STORY

 

We wanted to do something that hadn't been done.

To create a unique, beautiful gin, using a variable that wasn't limited to the botanicals selected for the recipe. 

We grew up on different coasts and are both ocean lovers, so we started playing with the elements of the sea.

 

We liked the results, so developed the idea of coastal gins, distilling the gin using ocean water and botanicals that grow on the coastlines of the specific oceans.

We distill our gin in Cape Town, where the mighty Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean join forces.
