About
An Artisanal distillery that captures the true spirit of Eden, through rare botanical selection and artful distillation. An epitome that pays tribute to this unique place we call home. It is from this land on the Southern coast of Africa that we draw inspiration and bring together the natural relationship between people and plants. Botanicals are hand foraged from a varied terrain that encompasses rugged coastline, majestic mountain plateaus, dense ancient forest, and remote semi-arid deserts.

    Gin distillary experience
    It was an awesome time. Mr. V was excellent. I would definitely recommend this to everyone who visits Mossel Bay. Nice parking outside as well as a personal tour of the gin distillary. In a very beautiful setting as well! Lots of fun!

    Must Do Experience
    What a wonderful experience! Again! This wasn't my first time doing the gin masterclass and it won't be my last. From the welcome drink, the gin making process untill you leave with your very own bottle of Gin were one BIG enjoyment. Not only do you learn a bit about gin, but the side jokes had us in laughing tears. I will recommend this every time to every one.

    Amazing Gin Masterclass
    The Gin Masterclass was amazing with Ronnie! We had a wonderful time making our own delicious gin and tasting different varieties as well as being toured around the facilities. It was an amazing experience and a highlight of our time in Mossel Bay.

Make sure to have Ronnie aka Adriaanus as your guide! Thank you for answering all our questions with so much patience. Making a joke to give it an even better experience!

    Must do in Mossel Bay
    Must do experience in Mossel Bay, even for the non-gin-drinkers. Great way to learn about the distilling process and so much fun creating your very own bottle with your own choice of flavours. Ronnie was fantastic!! He very quickly realised we were a relaxed group and made us all laugh and overall made the experience what it was. He was also very knowledgable about all things gin. Would go back and do it again for sure.

    Masterclass indeed
    The masterclass was absolutely what the name suggested. It was really interesting and so cool to actually do a gin by ourselves. Vernon was really great and knew how to entertain us! There was a lot of gin (around us and eventually also in us;)) that could be tasted. It was a blast and I would do it all over again if I wojld not live at the other side of the world.

    Fun experience in Mossel Bay
    What a beautiful facility and wonderful Gin Making Master Class! Ronnie is absolutely the best and made a fun event even more enjoyable. He thoroughly explained the process and walked us through every step. Can’t wait to get home and try out our finished masterpieces. Would definitely recommend this event

    The most enjoyable highlight on our holiday.
    What a wonderful experience. It was fun and the staff Ronny and Vernal were so engaged in giving us a wonderful time. The whole place is beautiful. The gin and liquor tasting was the best I've ever experienced. Well done. Loving regards the Mooinooi fans.

Visited the gorgeous distillery to take the Gin Masterclass as a birthday treat.

I distilled my very own blend of gin with personalised aromatics while learning about the alchemy behind the popular drink.

Our Gin Guide was exceptionally knowledgeable, the tour of the facility and his storytelling was equally entertaining.

A great masterclass experience thanks to the one and only Mr V. He is an incredible host and presenter, everyone enjoyed the experience and we learnt a lot about the gin distillation process. We can't wait to try out our custom-made gins and we enjoyed a gin tasting whilst waisting for our gins to distill. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone and, if you are lucky, you will get to experience this with the vibrant Mr V!

We had a fun morning learning about gin and producing our own gin. What a unique experience! We were able to taste the gin on sale at the distillery. The distillery is focused on empowering locals by teaching them skills, the gin is bottled in pottery bottles made on site. They use locally grown botanicals in the production of the gin. 'Mr V' our facilitator for the session was a real character! Lots of fun. I would recommend this as a lekker activity for a group of friends.

We had the best experience at the Cape St Blaize Gin making Masterclass. Excellent presenter of the clas who knows what he is doing and makes it enjoyable for everyone present. Would definitely recommend to anyone even if you are not a gin drinker. Our first gin experience as well.

Such a pleasant experience ☺️, Ronnie was a great tutor. Kept us all entertained. The gin making experience was insightful. Enjoyed the acute gin tasting to explore the 3 different guns of Cape Saint Blaize. The experience is something I'd recommend anyone who is in Mossel Bay to do it. The setup was great, and the venue was clean.

An absolutely amazing way to spend an evening. We stayed at the Protea hotel, strolled over to the distillery and spent a really nice and fun couple of hours learning about, tasting and making gin. Our teacher was entertaining and knowledgable. We finished off the evening with dinner at the restaurant. Can highly recommend all of it!
