The Cape Leopard is central to the GINSMITH brand.


Our farm and micro distillery are called Tygerkloof  after tjiger,  the word by which leopards were known in earlier days. 


The GINSMITH 'cape leopard collection' of handcrafted gins has an awe inspiring leopard gracing the bottles. It speaks to the shyness and vulnerability of the species.

Our commitment to the conservation of these magnificent, endangered cats, and their natural environment in the Grootwinterhoek mountains where we live, has resulted in a partnership with the Cape Leopard Trust.


The scope of our partnership with the Cape Leopard Trust continues to grow and we donate R10 from every bottle sold to their incredible conservation effort.

The first 1000 bottles sold with these neck tags resulted in our first donation of R10,000 to the CAPE LEOPARD TRUST......
