TYGERKLOOF DISTILLERY explore, taste, celebrate
Tygerkloof Distillery, the home of GINSMITH GINS, is about 2 hours from Cape Town.
The GINSMITH Gin Tastings and Tapas and Tastings experiences make for an interesting and adventurous day out. A number of our guests have said that their experience at GINSMITH was 'the highlight of their time on the mountain'.
Our beautiful fynbos farm high in the mountains bordering the Grootwinterhoek Wilderness Area, is accessed just north of Porterville via the Dasklip Pass (famous for paragliding), with breath taking views extending from Table Mountain to the West Coast village of St Helena Bay.
On the mountain you may well see black eagles, cape vulture and other bird and animal life. On our farm we have seen porcupine, leopard, ratel (honey badger), klipspringer and aardwolf, mountain reebok, grysbok and recently two caracal kittens. More often than not a troop of baboon and dassies, are around. The fynbos is beautiful and unspoiled, and waterfalls and pools abundant.
Should you wish to overnight we have a guest cottage which is ideal for a couple. Tygerkloof Guest Cottage. In addition there are a number of guest houses and chalets available on the mountain and in Porterville village. The well known campsite, Beaverlac, is accessed from the top of the pass. Guest cottage accommodation include: Pampoenfontein cottages, Berghoff chalets, Heidedal Guest House, Rockhaven, and Cedar Peak guest farm.
The last kilometre of road up to the distillery is a track which can be driven with an ordinary sedan, slowly and carefully. A SUV or equivalent is recommended.
