Elephant Gin produces award-winning handcrafted premium gin products made with rare African botanicals. While its story started in South Africa, Elephant Gin is handmade in Germany with a focus on the highest quality production standards. All ingredients are hand-selected, bottles custom-made, labels hand-written and production-controlled by small batches. Reminiscing about the so-called ‘sundowner’ drinks after a day out in the South African bush. These sunset cocktails are a big tradition in South Africa – and more often than not, they consist of a G & T. The idea was backed by a mutual love of exotic African botanicals and a realization that would make it interesting addition to a premium gin, alongside more traditional botanicals such as juniper and orange peel. The founders were inspired to create Elephant Gin following their own adventures in Africa.With a vision to conserve the wildlife they feel so passionately for, they decided to launch a product that would help conservation trusts. They strongly believe that this generation has a responsibility to support the African wildlife today, so others can continue to enjoy it in the future. With every full size bottle sold, Elephant Gin contributes 15% of profits to elephant conservation charities including Big Life Foundation, while with each miniature bottle sold, 15% of profits is donated to Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. All of these organisations are devoted to the conservation of the African elephant. Focused on resolutely artisan production methods, all ingredients are carefully checked for any impurities – guaranteeing the optimal flavour profile. Without any artificial flavouring, Elephant Gin only uses locally sourced spring water to bring its products to their required alcoholic volumes. Elephant Gin’s environmentally and socially sustainable production methods have been recognised by Positive Luxury, a company with a mission to close the trust gap between people and brands. They awarded Elephant Gin with their Butterfly Mark.
