SIX DOGS BLUE GIN

The first blue gin to be launched in South Africa, Six Dogs Blue is a classic dry gin with a slightly floral character, with hints of freshly cut lucerne and morning-harvested rose pelargonium. Its name derived from the blue pea flower (Clitoria ternatea), an antioxidant and alleged aphrodisiac in traditional medicine. The infusion of blue pea gives the gin its striking and entirely natural colour, while the alchemy of this unusual botanical is further revealed when the gin is mixed with a good tonic, changing the colour to light pink.

JOHN BANNERMAN’S WHISKY

Bannerman’s is made using a very slow distillation process, which ensures as much copper contact as possible, creating it’s beautiful fruity flavours. Older, more aged malt whisky blends are used, of exceptional five to six-year-old whiskies, while the legal limit is three years. This gives Bannerman’s a bolder, more complex flavour and helps create its wonderfully smooth and rich character. Think tasting notes with a delicate vanilla-toffee nose, complex with rich notes of honey and oak in the mouth.
