An innovative blend of 14 botanicals with rare African ingredients as well as fresh apples sourced from the orchards around the distillery. The gin’s nose yields a subtle juniper aroma with an undertone of mountain pine and other herbaceous notes. The taste is complex but strikingly smooth encompassing floral, fruity and spicy flavours which can be enjoyed both straight and in a cocktail. Each bottle is custom-made, adorned with hand-written labels and embossed with a crest. Each batch is named after past great tuskers and elephants that Elephant Gin’s partner elephant conservation foundations currently help to protect.
All of Elephant Gin’s products are handcrafted in Germany; produced in small-batches and using the traditional method of copper still distillation in an Arnold Holstein still. Many controlled manual steps and a slow, gentle distillation process ensure rich flavours and the highest level of quality.
Elephant Gin was born from our adventurous trips across Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa. Unsure what the future held, they decided to take action and make an impact to help protect the African elephant - even from afar. Back in Europe, they came up with the idea for an African-inspired gin while reminiscing about the so-called ‘sundowner’ G&Ts we enjoyed during our trips. The Elephant Gin sundowners bring like-minded people together - and 15% of bottle profits are donated to elephant conservation projects!
