In January 2018 I found myself staying in Stillbaai, a cute little coastal town just a few hours out of Cape Town. My family and I were staying in a place 2 minutes up the road from the famous Inverroche Gin distillery and while partaking in their totally amazing gin tasting session I was delighted to find out they offered gin school.
I was breathless with excitement, and to make it a million times better we had the founder of Inverocche, Lorna Scott, teach us the basics.
Wow, what an incredible woman with such a beautiful way of teaching and I was in awe of what Lorna, her family and dedicated staff have created, not only in their totally incredible gin, but the new distillery they have designed. A real bliss space.
I left inspired. Eyes shining from the experience with my own little bottle of gin tucked under my arm. Time has passed and with the support of precious family members, a highly talented graphic designer and many, many hours in front of my little (and I mean little!) pot still, Artistry Gin has become a reality.
