CLIFTON SIPPING GIN – Clifton 1

SIGNATURE BOTANICALS

Proudly made in the Cape, Clifton Sipping Gin is a rare expression of a fine sipping gin.

This crafted spirit is perfect served straight up over ice. The floral top-notes are balanced with a creamy mouthfeel and a distinctive caramelised flavour from the use of Cape honeybush.

This perfumed Rare Cape gin offers numerous floral accords including the soothing notes of chamomile blossoms, lavender and Cape snowbush.
This is an exceptionally smooth and eminently drinkable gin which is complex, long and offers a honeyed tea note.

Drink Clifton Sipping Gin straight up on the rocks or mix into a more traditional cocktail.

MOMENTS

The iconic Clifton beaches are ranged at the bottom of craggy, rugged cliffs, after which they are named. Once an isolated outpost, today these are some of the most exclusive beaches (and neighbourhoods) in Cape Town. Clifton Sipping Gin, or Clifton One, is inspired by the colours of the sunset glinting off the clear Atlantic ocean just off First Beach.

FLAVOUR PROFILE

Clifton Sipping Gin is distilled slowly in copper pot stills no less than twice. As with all gin, we led with juniper berries, dried orange peel, coriander seeds, lemon peel and cardamom. We performed small craft distillations on the sipping gin infusing it with honeybush and lavender, rounded off with hints of chamomile and Cape snowbush. This resulted in a well-balanced sipping gin with aromatic flavours of juniper, lemon and fresh fynbos.
