Love Gin? Come find out why Cape Town is the Gin capital of the world! Infused with local fynbos botanicals found nowhere else. Make sure you leave room in your luggage!
The Dutch invented gin and then the British claimed it and made it world famous. Does this sound familiar in South African history? The common 'Dutch courage' saying evolved from a British and Dutch battle in the 17th century. The Dutch soldiers were known to to carry a flask with them before heading out to battle. The British always wondered, why are they so fearless!
Cape Town has long been known for her wine but what people are starting to find out is that Cape Town’s Gin is pretty bloody good too! Infused with the Cape’s native Fynbos vegetation, the local Gin scene is unlike no where else in the world, so come experience a Cape Town Gin Tour.

Great tour of the growing Gin distilleries in and around Cape Town. We ended a hidden gin bar at the back of a cafe which was also excellent. The snacks that were offered in the car were very welcome. For gin lovers I would highly recommend.
