Nuy Winery, situated on the R60 between Worcester and Robertson, proudly announces the addition of two craft gins to their product range – Nuy Mastery Craft Gin and the limited edition Nuy Legacy Craft Gin.
Established in 1963, Nuy Winery was built on a singular cornerstone: Quality. As with their winemaking, Nuy ensures quality by producing and sourcing the very best botanicals, alcohol and packaging from within the borders of South Africa and around the world.
In keeping with the craft culture, these hand-crafted gins are created in small batches at a time of 2500 bottles of the Nuy Mastery Craft Gin and only 1000 bottles of the limited edition Nuy Legacy Craft Gin.
Nuy’s unique craft gin recipes were carefully created through various experimental batches in order to craft both complex and balanced recipes which caters for all gin lovers. A sugar cane base spirit is used as the blank canvas onto which the recipes are imparted through a combination of maceration and distillation. All botanicals used in the recipes are whole fruit and herbs with no artificial flavouring. The oils from the botanicals added during the distillation process gives the gin a clear blue hue which can be seen once water or tonic is added. The final product is an extremely smooth spirit which should be enjoyed neat or as a classic G&T.
