Together with our Guides Roy & Preston we have created some unique Urban Experiences to show you a fantastic day out in Cape Town.
I have been fortunate to work in this area for over a decade whilst running my own beverage business. During this time, I have met many craftsmen & woman whose passion for what they do has transformed this area into what it is today, a funky, hip & cool area where many local artisan craft businesses strive.
We'd be delighted to show you around & introduce you to Simon & Warren who own & Craft amazing products in their new distillery.

As a gin lover this was an amazing interactive experience thanks to Simon our gin master distiller and Preston our experience guide. I learnt a lot about the gin making process and I love the personalised gin I got to make and take home. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cape Town 😊

We learned so much about gin and loved the personalization of our very own gins! It was fun to create our recipes and talk them through with the gin master distiller, Simon. All of the cocktails they crafted were amazing, and the snacks were a nice touch too. Highly recommend!!

This is the ONLY gin making experience I found in Cape Town. It’s trully worth it. We had an amazing time! We had a gin cocktail as a welcome and then we tried our own creations and we’re taking a 500ml bottle of our gin home. Preston, our experience guide, was great and very knowledgeable. If you have the time to do this activity, book!
