Knysna is home to the haunting beauty of Africa’s southernmost Afromontane forest. Deep within the forest a creature known only to this part of the world exists - the Phantom Moth. Phantom is named after this ghost moth and pays tribute to the wild spirits that dwell in this delicate ecoregion. From the majestic elephants whose trails are long forgotten to the slow-footed dwarf chameleon and regal Knysna Lourie to name a few. This contemporary style gin is crafted from botanicals sourced from Knysna and infused with natural fulvic trace minerals that lend to its unique earthy colour and offer you a taste of the ancient forest.
Knysna is home to the majestic coastal dunes of Brenton-on-Sea in the Western Cape of South Africa. It is here, amongst the fragrant fynbos and thickets under the shaded sanctuary of the indigenous trees, that another phantom creature exists - the Brenton Blue Butterfly. This gin pays tribute to the endangered Brenton Blue Butterfly and its endearing story. This Contemporary gin focuses on elevating the traditional flavours of a London Dry Gin with naartjie, cardamom and pink peppercorns with the introduction of unique flora qualities from the addition of lavender. Smooth mouth-feel with fruity citrus and piney juniper in the beginning with a luscious pop of lavender and aromatic spices at the end. Discover the Story Here.
