Established in 2014, Hope Distillery was the first licensed small batch distillery to open in Cape Town. The Distillery not only creates its own spirits (a range of gins, vodka, an agave spirit and a rum) but is also a market leader in contract distillation, producing other top-selling local gin brands.
You can visit the Distillery to purchase their gins and other spirits during the week, or visit on a Saturday afternoon for a range of different tastings. The Tasting Room overlooks the Distillery floor and you can choose a “do it yourself” gin & tonic tasting, where you taste 3 or 4 different gins; or a spirits tasting where you can sample the vodka, rum and agave spirits. Tastings are relaxed affairs: you get to see where the spirits are made, learn a bit about the gins and the botanicals and take it at your own pace while relaxing and enjoying a cheese or charcuterie platter.
Keep an eye on their social media pages for other Distillery Tasting Room events.
