Launch of Cape Town Gin Route
The Cape Town Gin Route launched on World Gin Day
the 9th June 2018 and I was fortunate enough to attend the event.
This route is long overdue and the perfect addition to the city.
With the Western Cape already home to world-class wine routes, a brandy route and even olive route – the Pepperclub Hotel & Spa decided it was time to embrace the incredible distilling talent on their doorstep and launch the Cape Town Gin Route.
Launched at the hotel on World Gin Day, 9 June 2018, the Cape Town Gin Route aims to celebrate the skill and premium gins of six inner-city distilleries, namely Hope on Hopkins, Musgrave Gin, the Woodstock Gin Company, New Harbour Distillery, Pienaar & Son and the Cape Town Gin Company.
With over 20 exceptional gins available for tasting and purchase, from six distilleries within six kilometers, the Cape Town Gin Route will share this incredible local industry with visitors and locals alike, creating yet another reason for food and drink connoisseurs to visit the city.
Says General Manager of the Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, Efi Ella, “As a proudly inner-city hotel, we saw this as an opportunity to celebrate the exceptional gin that is being produced locally – which, we would argue is even better that its international counterparts. We are honoured to be associated with these incredible distilleries and provide a platform where users can plan their own journey of gin discovery, that is likely right on their doorstep”.
About the Cape Town Gin Route
Much like the websites for the major Cape wine routes, http://capetownginroute.co.za/ will allow visitors to get to know each distillery, what they offer, and plan their visit around this fragrant spirit. In a few weeks, the Cape Town Gin Tour will launch – a guided full-day tour of all the distilleries, which will include a tasting experience of each gin, and even the opportunity to make your own. Keep an eye on the website or follow along on Instagram or Facebook for updates as they are announced.
