Gin

Inverroche hosted media and friends of Inverroche at the Inverroche Distillery in Stilbaai, unveiling the essence of their gin. The key influencers included Lulama Wolf, Pearl Modiadie, Maps Maponyane, Leandie du Randt, and Mmanaka Kelobanye were welcomed by founder, CEO, and brand storyteller, Lorna Scott.

Lorna was the first to infuse gin with Fynbos, creating and pioneering a new category in the local and international industry. 

Her passion for sustainability has led to a successful eco-friendly business where 70 % of the staff are women employed from the local community, and the entire gin-making process, from distillation to bottling is symbiotic with the environment. Inverroche is currently available in over 16 countries worldwide. There is only a small number of machinery in the distillery as all of their bottles are individually hand packaged – from filling the bottles with gin, bottling, and labelling, to wrapping and packaging the gins.

A taste of conscious luxury, sharing their heritage, process, and people. A journey beyond enjoyment, where true luxury meets mindfulness. The campaign perfectly launched through such an experience with the immersive event at Inverroche’s Distillery in Stilbaai.

The campaign embodies and celebrates what truly defines Inverroche at its core. A range crafted from the unique biome and world heritage site of the Cape Floral Kingdom, bringing to light our shared origins and collective history. And a community that supports the Stilbaai area by driving female empowerment and pioneering originators. Delivering a hand-harvested, hand-labeled, and hand-crafted nature of our existence. An ongoing journey to embrace the world as it should be.
