It is no secret that we are HUGE fans of Angel Heart Beverages (best known for Ginifer Gin, Westcliff Gin, and Angel Heart Liqueur) and the fabulous dynamic force at the helm of this company, Jacqueline Grobler!
We visited the premises last year for day of glorious gin and awesomeness – if you want to read a little more about it here:
So I always love sharing all the good news stories about these exciting brands – and now we’re focusing on Westcliff, read more here:
“Named the Best Gin at the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards at the end of last year, it also secured a Bronze Medal in the category best International Contemporary Gin in the 2017 American Distilling Institute’s (ADI) craft spirits competition.
A skillful infusion of interesting botanicals native to Africa, including Buchu leaves and IsiPhephetu (African Ginger), have been combined with traditional Gin botanicals to create this beautifully balanced floral gin with undertones of juniper and coriander. Made in the London dry tradition, it’s rested for two months before bottling and the result is a soft spirit that can be served simply over ice, or paired with interesting ingredients that enhance its profile”.
Jacqueline says, “We believe we have captured the amazing energy of Joburg in a bottle. More than that, we have captured the energy and contrasts of the city in surprising ways.”
The packaging, striking in black and gold, continues the theme and the background design on the label is a deconstructed Swe-Swe pattern. Sophisticated and elegant – the overall finish is timeless.
