Distilled in Germany using 14 botanicals, inlcuding unusual African ingredients like Baobab, the Buchu plant, Devil's Claw and African Wormwood. The gin's distinct nose first yields a subtle juniper aroma, with an undertone of mountain pine and other herbaceous notes. The taste is complex but strikingly smooth, encompassing floral, fruity and spicy flavours, which can be enjoyed both straight or in a cocktail. 50cl bottle.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The idea for an African-inspired gin evolved while reminiscing about the so-called 'sundowner' drinks after a day out in the South African bush. These sunset cocktails are a big tradition in South Africa - and more often than not, they consist of a G&T. The idea was backed by a mutual love of exotic African botanicals and a realisation that these would make interesting additions to a premium gin, alongside more traditional botanicals such as juniper and orange peel. All ingredients are hand-selected, bottles custom-made, labels hand-written and production efforts controlled by working in small batches.
15% of Elephant Gin's profits go to two African elephant foundations - you can read more about the project on the Elephant Gin website.
