We’ve got loads of fabulous drinks you’re going to love!


Muratie: Laurens Campher 2021

This is a unique blend of Chenin Blanc with smaller amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho, and Viognier. The flavours are complex and intense, ranging from bright lemon, fresh pineapple, apricots and juicy nectarine to more concentrated lime marmalade, caramel and cream. On the palate, the initial impression is floral, finishing with white peaches and apricots and hints of citrus and fresh acidity – promising enjoyment over at least five years. Retail price is R250.



Sugar Baron: Single Estate White Rum 

Located in KZN’s Midlands South, near Richmond, Seafield Farm boasts a unique terroir for premium sugarcane. This sugarcane is exclusively used in crafting the award-winning Sugar Baron Single Estate Rum, following the traditional Agricole style. The juice from hand-cut sugarcane is extracted, fermented, distilled, and bottled on-site, resulting in the finest Single Estate Rums. Retail price is R395.



Miss Penny Brands Lemongrass Ballito Dry Gin: Christmas Edition

Newly launched, this lemongrass-infused gin accompanies the sublime Sage-Infused Ballito Dry Gin. Made from North Coast sugar cane, these two original and unique organic gins are twice distilled on KZN’s Dolphin Coast. Miss Penny’s conscientiously created craft gins are the perfect lifestyle choice and will restyle your gin experience. They are also the ideal gifts. Retail price from R500.



Six Dogs: Red Chenin

This is a unique white wine that challenges the traditional expectations of what a Chenin Blanc should be. For starters, it’s red in colour, having been coloured and softened by the blend of Roobernet grapes! And while Six Dogs Distillery is predominantly a gin brand, they just couldn’t resist innovating and creating a truly special wine. You can serve Red Chenin chilled and preferably in the company of friends. It’s the perfect wine for a summer picnic, a braal, or your steak of choice. Retail price is R120.
