Make your unique brand of gin

And there’s more: vodka, rum, fiery ginger beer plus the chance to tour this working distillery

Distillers & Union is a brand new distillery on the Woodstock gin scene. Created by the guys behind 5 Pence and Dragon Brewing Co, this new venture is a gin lover’s dream. You can do gin tastings, gin tours and even learn to make your own gin – and listen to live music. Plus, it is a working distillery, so you also get to see the artisans in action.  

TASTE TEST ALL OF DISTILLERS & UNION’S GINS

Distillers & Union co-founder Simon Von Witts’ award-winning, hand-crafted alcohol brand 5 Pence is ready for tasting, along with his own tonic water and non-alcoholic G&T, James Benson. You can also sample Warren Harries-Jones’ delicious range of fiery ginger beer. If you'd like to be a bit more adventurous, also give the Cold Fusion vodka-and-rum tasting a try.

BECOME A GIN CONNOISSEUR 

Unlike other distilleries, at Distillers & Union you can make your own personal bottle of gin and watch as the gin-making unfolds. Lining the middle of the tables are several antique-looking multi-column copper pot stills. This is where you'll pour your chosen spices, citrus, herbs and floral botanicals. Then you'll get to pick the alcohol level. You can even design your bottle’s logo. In the end, you'll get to sample your creation in a personalised gin cocktail and soak it all up with some delicious snacks.

YOU’LL BE IN THE HEART OF A WORKING DISTILLERY

Take a stroll around the place and get a peek at some of the artisans in action. If you want to get a birds-eye view of the whole distillery climb up to the top of the beautifully crafted wooden spiral staircase. It's as old as the building itself and, according to distillery co-founder Simon Von Witt, it took a lot of work to achieve its distinctive look. There’s an official tour of the distillery every Friday.

DAN KELLY IS PLAYING LIVE AT DISTILLERS & UNION

For a Saturday lunch, grab some mates and unwind to Dan Kelly, a local musician with an Elvis-style voice. Kelly plays live every week at 1pm. Pop in for a cocktail or book yourself and some friends in for a day of gin-tasting and gin-making online via distillersunion.co.za.
