This is the first time I hear about craft gin, sounds very interesting but I dont drink it at all.

I would like to buy someone a bottle as a Christmas gift, nothing too expensive but something nice. Is there perhaps some suggestions?

Location? There's usually a few Craft Gins on the shelves at my local bottle stores. Look for something made in SA.

I know Inverroche is widely available.

Recently tried the Blaauwklippen No.3. Tastes amazing. Anyone know whether they add sugar to the gin?

^^^ Sneaking tequila into the thread eh.
How's the Ginifer?

Bought this for someone recently.
I liked it, they liked it, and the bonus of it turning pink when you add tonic water.

Hope the other stores join in with some specials for Gin Day.
Did a tasting at Inverroche over the weekend. Their gins are still top of the pile for me. A flavour for every occasion.
They also offer a Gin distilling course where you get to make your own bottle of gin. Definitely on my list of things to do when I go to Stilbaai again.

I totally agree. Inverroche is the good stuff. I've also been to the distillery during December, and really enjoyed it.

I bought a bottle of Cruxland as well, but it's not much different than Gordon's. :rolleyes:

Very strange, everyone seems to be talking and reading about Six Dogs locally made craft gin these days but not a mention of it on this thread!
Any comments?
