AFRICAN TASTE, GERMAN QUALITY
Elephant Gin produces award-winning handcrafted premium gin products made with rare African botanicals.
While its story started in South Africa, Elephant Gin is handmade in Germany with a focus on highest quality production standards.
All ingredients are hand-selected, bottles custom-made, labels hand-written and production efforts controlled by working in small batches.
The idea for an African-inspired gin evolved while reminiscing about the so-called ‘sundowner’ drinks after a day out in the South African bush. These sunset cocktails are a big tradition in South Africa – and more often than not, they consist of a G&T. The idea was backed by a mutual love of exotic African botanicals and a realisation that these would make interesting additions to a premium gin, alongside more traditional botanicals such as juniper and orange peel.
Elephant Gin is distilled using 14 botanicals, including rare African ingredients that haven’t been used in gin-making before. The botanicals are hand-selected to limit any impurities and ensure only the highest quality ingredients are used.
