Tygerkloof Distillery, the home of GINSMITH GINS is just over 2 hours from Cape Town.
- An easy and beautiful drive from the Cape Winelands, the Swartland - Riebeek Valley, as well as West Coast villages such as Darling, Langebaan, and Paternoster.
Our GINSMITH Gin Tastings are now an easy to reach destination as part of an interesting and adventurous day out.

Visitors can enjoy a multifaceted experience, high in the mountains bordering on the Grootwinterhoek Wilderness Area. While the home of GINSMITH GINS is a perfect destination, situated on an exceptionally beautiful unspoiled mountain fynbos farm, the journey traveled to get there is breathtaking. Ascending the mountain via the magnificent Dasklip Pass, one is given an eagles eye view of Table Mountain, weather permitting, all the way to West Coast and St Helena Bay. The views are spectacular. There are numerous guest farms and chalets available should you wish to over night on the mountain.
The last kilometre of road up to the distillery is a track which can be driven with an ordinary sedan, slowly and carefully. An SUV or equivalent is recommended.
