“A passion for Craft”

Time Anchor Distillery
Reviewed 1 August 2016 via mobile

Time Anchor Distillery is a craft distillery in Maboneng. The main products the distillery has at this stage is gin (a classic gin and a honeybush and botanicals gin) and rum (white rum, vanilla rum and cocoa rum).

However what really impressed me was that the distillers are keen on experimenting, producing new products and tastes from time to time.

We were a group of 8, and we were treated to the amazing taste profiles concocted by the distillers. A real treat.

The tasting was not just all drinking though. It had a great educational side to it, and we learnt a lot about the history of gin and how to best enjoy the drink.

Definitely worth a visit.

The distillery is beautifully fitted out with a bar counter and chairs for visitors. It is run by a couple that is passionate about producing top quality rum and gin. Tasting tours for rum or gin are offered in a friendly atmosphere. Very informative and interesting with lovely personal touches. A real labour of love and an inspiration to what you can achieve in your spare time. The gins and rums are delicious with a wide variety of both on offer. The venue is just outside the Maboneng precinct and the walk to the restaurants felt somewhat less safe than Moboneng itself. Lots of Uber drivers around though if you prefer not to walk. A fun way to start your Maboneng evening with a group of friends.

Thank-you for the visit, we always love to hear feedback!

We now have a security guard who will safely walk you from Maboneng East to the heart of the Precinct in future to make the walk as safe and comfortable as possible :)

We hope to welcome you back in the future!
