Wixworth, an artfully balanced gin, subtly infused with South African Renosterbos, has launched on April 5th, 2017.
Following in the footsteps of London distillers in their quest to perfect their Dry Gin recipes, Wixworth undertook their own journey to craft and perfect the quintessential gin recipe with subtle hints of South Africa. They spent many years consulting experts in both the gin and botanical fields in the search for a recipe that would remain true to the classic style, while also adding a touch of local South African flavour. An important step in crafting the gin, was finding a botanical or ingredient that would provide this local note, while also complementing the classic flavours. It has led them to Renosterbos (Elytropappus rhinocerotis), an indigenous South African shrub found abundantly growing in the Renosterveld.
Why Renosterbos, you might ask? Renosterbos was selected, because when infused with the finest traditional botanicals, the delicate floral and sweet pine flavours, together with the subtle spicy notes of the Renosterbos adds complexity and deliciousness to this exquisite gin. The perfectly crafted recipe and unique combination of botanicals allows Wixworth to deliver a distinctive gin experience with every sip, one that not only honours the tradition surrounding classic gin, but enhances it.
Gin enthusiasts can expect a crisp and dry gin defined by fresh juniper and subtle floral flavours with hints of spice and zesty citrus. Its uniquely crafted taste together with the beautiful eye-catching packaging is sure to have Wixworth stand out from the crowd on shelf, as well as when it is enjoyed in your favourite cocktail. For the ultimate Wixworth experience, we recommend the classic Wix & Tonic – Wixworth and Tonic Water with a lime wheel.
Wixworth is available from all major retail stockists nationwide for R299.
