Gin is where it’s at right now. It’s never been more popular in South Africa. It might come as a surprise that there are more than 75 local gin brands being produced by 50 local gin distillers dotted around the country. Now, thanks to the launch of The Gin Box, SA’s first craft gin club, gin lovers can enjoy the multitude of locally produced, craft gins and tonics, with a different brand delivered to their door every month.
We were privileged to attend their official Jozi launch at the very beautiful Beechwood Gardens in Hyde Park. We got to try some of the very best gin SA has on offer, in a lovely garden setting. It’s as if the venue was created solely for the sipping of gin and tonics. This is also where I got to meet the founder of Gin Box, Jean Buckham.
