THE STEPCHILD celebrates the indigenous herbs which grow on our farm. In season we harvest buchu (agathosma Betulina) blossoms which are more subtle in flavour than the very oil rich leaves.


Fennel carries some length with the buchu blossoms and is earthed with kapok (wild rosemary) and mphephu (african sage) which are also harvested on our land.


People passionate about this gin encouraged us to include it in our submissions to the Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits awards. When it was awarded a Gold Medal, we took it to our hearts and called it THE STEPCHILD. 


Serve with a classic tonic, citrus, fresh coriander leaves and some pomegranate pearls.
