This year, Inverroche has introduced Inverroche Coco Capensis, the third addition to its Creative Collection Series.
“Capensis” refers to that which originates from, or which belongs to, a cape – in this case, the Cape at the southern tip of Africa and the home of Inverroche, based in Still Bay.
Lorna Scott, the CEO and founder of the SA’s largest artisanal gin brand, has always pushed the boundaries of gin making with local flora and interesting botanicals. Now she has created a gin where the consumer can explore the innovation of colour by adding a tasteless, all-natural rose-malva pinking essence into the outer box, which will transform the clear liquid into a beautiful and elegant pink colour.
You can use the full vial to add a pink hue to the entire bottle or just splash a few drops into your glass of gin and tonic.
Only 13,200 bottles of this limited-edition variant are available in SA this festive season, making it the perfect Christmas gift.
What differentiates Inverroche from its competitors is its use of fynbos, the rare, indigenous Western Cape flora found nowhere else on the planet.
Inverroche Coco Capensis is an elegant, smooth and well-balanced dry gin with a nuanced floral and fruit profile. The combination of fynbos botanicals complements the juniper and makes this gin perfect for mixability.
The lead flavours, including Cape May and rose pelargonium, are held together by subtle characteristics of ruby chocolate. The gin is soft and tart on the nose, while the finish is well rounded and delicate.
Lorna recommends that the gin be served with premium Indian tonic over ice, garnished with rose petals, a sprig of orange buchu, pomegranate seeds and an almond macaroon or a strawberry tuile on the side, creating a memorable summer drink.
This beautiful creation invites Inverroche’s consumers to share in the magic of alchemy by filling their lives with creativity and pinking moments.
