Charles Withington, Ida Opperman and Riaan Neethling are the dynamic trio that collectively brings you Darlington Gin. While playing around with the idea and coming up with flavour profiles, the team couldn’t shake the idea that they had to include Kukumakranka. To this day, Kukumakranka is still a rather unknown plant species and therefore holds certain mystical and exotic qualities. The trio wanted to capture these mystical-like characteristics within their gin, as they felt this notion also captures the true spirit of Darling itself. While Darlington is not specifically a botanically-infused gin, the way in which the hint of Kukumakranka is added remains as mysterious as the plant itself. It is subtle and elusive. And, in fact, you may not even taste it straight away, as it slowly reveals itself sip after sip.
