{news} Introducing Pangolin Gin: a zesty gin for a very deserving cause

Conservation non-profit Pangolin.Africa has partnered with New Harbour Distillery in Cape Town to launch Pangolin Gin – a limited-edition craft gin sold in support of the organisation’s pangolin awareness, protection and conservation efforts across Africa.

Master Distiller Nic Janeke – one of the most sought-after distillers in the country – has created a unique recipe for a truly African craft gin: Pangolin Gin is distilled using a blend of nine traditional botanicals – including Angelica Root, Sweet Orange Peel and fruit from the iconic African baobab tree – resulting in a wonderfully pungent aroma and zesty, spicy taste.

The first batch of Pangolin Gin is a limited run of just 400 individually numbered bottles, sold on pre-order, with payment due only once the distillery goes into production.

With all profits going to the conservation of the species – and delivery in early December – Pangolin Gin is the perfect gift for any gin lover this festive season. So drink up and help save a species!

The gin is priced at R595 per 750ml bottle including nationwide delivery in South Africa via Pargo.
