Following the overwhelming interest in the Cape Town Gin Route, which was launched in June, the Pepperclub Hotel & Spa is proud to introduce the Cape Town Gin Tour.

This full-day, immersive gin experience will see locals and visitors delve into the world of local artisanal gins, spending the day learning, tasting and making their own spirit for only R1 490 per person. A premium gin journey, this carefully curated tour will take you through the distilling process, explain the role of botanicals and of course, give you the opportunity to sip and sample the incredible gins Cape Town has to offer.

Starting and ending at the Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, gin lovers will begin their day at 10h00, learning about the fundamentals of this popular spirit at New Harbour Distillery, before trying their hand at making their own, bespoke bottle of gin, which will serve as a personal reminder of the day. After a short stop to refuel with lunch, the tour then heads to Hope on Hopkins Distillery, followed by visits to the Woodstock Gin Company, Pienaar & Son Distilling Company in the city centre, and finally, the Cape Town Gin & Spirits Company, before returning to the hotel at approximately 5.15pm.
