Staying true to tradition this is a classic dry style gin. With juniper as a fundamental botanical supported by citrus and our Karoo botanicals. Triple distilled in a traditional old Cape Pot Still forged by fire the same way we have been doing since 1858. Our base for our spirit is a wine sourced from the Karoo and prepared specifically for the distilling of the finest grape base spirit. After distilling our wine base twice we have a smooth spirits base ready to be steeped with our botanicals then tripled distilled.
WE MAKE USE OF 10 FINEST BOTANICALS AS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR KAROO GIN.
NOSE This is a gin that keeps on giving. The bouquet has a turkish delight perfume with citrus, wild lavender and juniper.
PALATE With a soft entry this is an exceptionally smooth gin. Rich mouth feel led by juniper, warm spice and grape fruit.
FINISH A lingering after taste with prominent liquorice and aniseed flavours.
Woodstock’s Grape distilled Inception gin is matured in American Oak barrels for a period of three to four months. During this time the stringency of the Grape distilled Inception gin is lowered and rich vanilla and marzipan flavours are now present in the gin. This provides for an extra premium gin, which can easily be sipped on its own or paired with lime and red peppercorns and Woodstock’s natural tonic water
A refreshingly complex gin with similar flavours on the palate as the grape distilled Inception gin, but with lingering undertones of rooibos and honeybush, which are added post distillation. Easy drinking on its own or with a block of ice and slice of lemon and a dash of light tonic or sparkling water. Unique South African flavours and refreshingly different from other gins.
A more robust, punchy gin. It has a slight caramel, ovaltine flavour on the nose from the initial beer distillation. This transcends into the traditional juniper berry flavour and picks up the lemon, lime and spices which carry through into the aftertaste. Drink on its own or add Mediterranean tonic water, a sliver of orange rind and a piece of cinnamon bark for a G&T with a twist.
Very smooth, elegant, full bodied gin with a slight hint of jasmine and corainder on the palate. Light tones of buchu, rooibos and a hint of citrus can be picked up in the after taste. Drink on its own or add a dash of light tonic water, gooseberries and rosemary or a slice of grapefruit for a superb South African G&T.
