• The first few months at the beginning of the year are usually the longest… and toughest of the year. Not too long ago you were enjoying late, lazy mornings, fun in the sun with family and friends and treating yourself to all things delicious while taking in a fantastic view. Being back in the real world doesn’t have to be so daunting. If you find yourself constantly dreaming about cocktails and sunsets, try some of these delicious Bloedlemoen Gin cocktails to help ease those post-holiday blues.

    Bloedlemoen pronounced ‘Blue’d Le Moon’ is the first Blood Orange Gin in the world and the fruit is locally sourced from growing partners in the Cape. It’s a contemporary, London Dry-style gin, which is distilled using 10 botanicals through a combination of maceration and vapour infusion. The result is a premium, small-batch gin that cuts no corners when it comes to quality and consistency, despite its humble beginnings. Look out for the new Bloedlemoen Amber that has just been launched.
