History

The Woodstock Gin Company was established in 2014 by founder, Simon Von Witt. After a period of producing varieties of Italian liqueurs, a friend and well-informed source in the industry advised Von Witt about the endless possibilities of gin. Von Witt then began experimenting with different botanicals to produce a high-quality South African gin. His passion for the environment, knowledge of local fynbos and indigenous plant species – as well as assistance from his source – enabled him to gauge the correct ratios of botanicals and create Woodstock Gin Company’s most famous blend, Inception! His well-guarded, secret recipe of botanicals delivers the taste that is only found through the company’s passion to create an exceptional quality gin.

Advice for visitors

Tour the distillery with an open mind. Avoid ordering your “standard G&T”, and allow the seriously awesome mixologists to educate your palate with a few new and refreshing cocktails that mix perfectly with Woodstock gin. Make a day mission out of the outing and spend the afternoon exploring the quirky shops and antique stores that line the streets of Woodstock. A favourite amongst locals is the Old Biscuit Mill that boasts some of South Africa’s most talented, innovative designers, artists, photographers and connoisseurs of fine taste and décor.

Did you know

Gin is a juniper berry infused alcohol. It can be made from any pure alcoholic base; however, the Woodstock Gin Company chooses to distil both wine and beer for theirs. Their range of gins consists of three different varieties using pale ale beer or chenin blanc as the base. Both are double distilled and infused with fynbos, giving the gins a complex and remarkable flavour.
