Roasted Rooibos Infused

The Piketberg region is where we source the exceptional Rooibos for our gin. Prior to infusing it into our Searsia London Dry Gin, we carefully dark roast the Rooibos.

Our Roasted Rooibos Gin stands out as a pioneering creation, offering a unique flavor profile with hints of veld fire smoke, beautifully harmonized by the invigorating forest fragrance of the Rooibos Fynbos.

During the early 17th century in the Caribbean, enslaved sugarcane workers made a significant discovery: they found that molasses, a byproduct of the sugar production process, could be fermented to create alcohol. This marked the birth of rum. Since then, legendary pirates, sailors in the navy, and even members of royalty have all played a part in shaping the rich history and traditions associated with this iconic beverage.

How We Do It

The Process

Gradually heat the still until it is brought up to temperature.
The Alcohol evaporates and the steam is forced into the copper condenser.
The hot alcohol condenses through the worm and runs out at the end.
Move all the alcohol back to the still and add the botanicals and water.
Re-heat the still, repeating steps 1, 2 & 3
Move all the alcohol to the proofing tank where it will be cut to the desired Alcohol percentage.
The bottles are filled with our Craft Gin, sealed, labelled and boxed.
