3 Gin Tasting in Cape Town

A couple of years ago a “G&T” was something people in old movies drank and most likely the only gin brand you could name was Gordons.

Craft gin has taken the world by storm and has shown no signs of the trend slowing down just yet. Funnily enough a good gin and tonic has always been a hot day staple for me. I would be lying if I told you it was always Inverroche and Fitch and Leads tonic. It was (and sometimes is) good old Gordons and Schweps. Because, well, I am average and so are my drinks.

Tasting gin has become as popular and natural in Cape Town as going for a wine or beer tasting and boy, the distilleries do not disappoint. Just like every handcrafted liquor, each producer has a cool story and a unique way of serving their product.
