Hello Craft Cartel Illovo!

The Gin Box got to see the inside of Craft Cartel Illovo, a brand new premium bottle shop. It’s opening this week in Illovo. Check it out!

The Gin Box hosted a few media and PR folk at this beautiful venue. Step into a beautiful bottle shop where you are surrounded by all things craft with their very own gin alley. It’s well worth a visit! We were joined by Luvuyo Jongile from Mayine Premium gin as well as Copper Fox, who treated our guests to their Gin & Tonic ready to drink tastings.

Owner and founder of The Gin Box, Jean Buckham, provided guests with industry insights before she set off for Juniperlooza, in London but also introduced our Johannesburg media to SA’s, Luvoyo Jongile from Mayine gin. Jongile was awarded SA’s first ever SA’s ‘Gin Business Bursary’ from The Gin Box.

Mayine Gin is SA’s first black-owned gin brand. Over the course of a year, The Gin Box will mentor co-founder Luvuyo Jongile as he grows his brand and business knowledge, culminating in a visit to Junipalooza in London 2019.
