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.

Hope on Hopkins London Dry Gin

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

Hope on Hopkins Salt River Gin

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

Mediterranean Gin

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.

    3 jiggers grapefruit juice
    2 jiggers Hope on Hopkins London dry gin
    1 dash of powdered sugar
    Shake with cracked ice, serve in a frosted glass.
