West Coast Distillers is proud to announce its recent receipt of a Gold Medal in the SA Craft Gin Awards 2019 for their Caspyn West Coast Gin. This prestigious award is sponsored by Checkers Liquor Shop and highlights the best in South African Craft Gin each year.
West Coast Distillers produce artisanal hand crafted gin and bitters in the heart of Langebaan. Friends of over 20 years, Shaun and Shane, co-founded West Coast Distillers in 2017 out of a love for the ocean and a good drink. The plan was hatched on board a plane to Croatia and the rest, as they say, was history. Their solid friendship and business acumen is the success behind West Coast Distillers. Their aim is to produce high quality, great tasting spirits that are unique and exciting.
West Coast Distillers calls the picturesque town of Langebaan, South Africa, home. They are flanked by the West Coast National Park and the tranquil Langebaan lagoon. West Coast Distiller’s relaxed approach to life is well suited to this small ocean town.
The award winning Caspyn West Coast Gin is crisp with a citrusy background. It includes 12 locally foraged botanicals in its distillation in a celebration of Western Cape Fynbos. Subtle floral notes from Rooibos, Honeybush and Hibiscus enhance the gin to create a well-balanced yet complex drink. Lemon and black pepper botanicals create a fresh but spicy ‘sherbet tingle’ to finish.
I have personally tried the Caspyn, and honestly love it.
