Today in our 25 Days of Giving celebration, artisanal distillery Hope on Hopkins is giving away a set of four bottles of Hope on Hopkins gin worth R1 500 including their flagships London Dry Gin, Salt River Gin, Mediterranean Gin, and the limited release Lucy’s Summer Gin, along with a set of Hope on Hopkins bamboo coasters.
Hope on Hopkins Distillery is a small artisanal distillery in Cape Town that prides itself on truly crafting its spirits. Set up by two ex-lawyers who followed their hearts and turned their hands to distilling, they handcraft a variety of gins, two using malted barley which they cook, ferment and triple distil into a single malt vodka and the third using a triple distilled grape base. The gins are then distilled a fourth time in their pot still Mildred with a blend of different botanicals to make the gins.
London Dry Gin
A smooth and sophisticated take on a classic, with hints of citrus complementing rosemary and juniper. Perfect for a gin and tonic (served with a twist of lemon zest and sprig of rosemary), yet smooth enough for a martini
Salt River Gin
A more contemporary, floral gin that brings South African flavours to the fore, infused with a range of local botanicals including buchu and kapokbos. Best served in a gin and tonic with slice of grapefruit and a sprig of thyme
Inspired by flavours from the Mediterranean, this gin is a savoury gin infused with olives, basil, rosemary and thyme. Best served “dirty” in a gin just 50ml tonic water, a green olive and a dash of brine
Lucy’s Summer Gin
A limited edition, Lucy’s summer gin is infused with pomegranate, pink peppercorns and bay leaves. Perfect for summer G&Ts.
