Distillery Information

The nose is lemon blossom, orange, and just a hint of lavender. The palate opens with a hint of bitterness with a touch of sweetness, Meyer lemon, tangerine, and lemon blossoms mixed with a dilute cucumber water, mixed with the floral notes of the lavender, and the spiciness of the sage.Popular botanicals used in gin include juniper berries, coriander, angelica root, orris root, citrus peels, and many others. We recommend that you research the characteristics of each botanical and how they contribute to the flavour profile of the spirit.Gin is basically a neutral spirit that is then flavoured with botanicals – herbs, berries, spices, bark, roots, flowers, bits of vegetation, anything, frankly. To make a classic London Dry gin such as Beefeater, this botanical mix is usually put in the still to macerate for a while with the neutral spirit, then boiled.Hand-crafted at its home on Distillery Road in Stellenbosch, this distinctive African gin offers a contemporary, wild-at-heart taste created with the beloved London dry method.
Company president August Sebastiani named the handcrafted, small-batch gin after a favorite uncle, Valerio Cecchetti. The botanicals selected for this unique gin — juniper, cucumber, lemon, sage and lavender — are the same as those Uncle Val likes to use in his cooking and grows in his home garden.
