Duke Gin is produced on Summerfields Macadamia and Litchi Farm in Hazyview, Mpumalanga. From farm-to-bottle, the entire process is carried out on the farm to make sure that Duke Gin is pure, clear and sumptuous. Even the botanicals that give Duke Gin its distinctive taste are mostly grown at Summerfields.
Duke is an exotically fragrant gin - traditional and tropical botanicals are gradually infused during distillation to produce a balance between sweet, fresh hints of rose, ginger and honey, and grounded, earthy tones of juniper berries and macadamia.
Hot, humid summers with thunderous rainstorms create the ideal climate needed to produce the sweet floral-like flavours characteristic to the litchi fruit.
DUKE COPPER took bronze at the Old Mutual Trophy Spirit Show 2019! The Spirit Show is the country's most authoritative wine show.

Duke Sportsman is fermented and distilled in small batches on the estate. Masterful infusions during distillation produce a spirit where the purplish pine of juniper takes the royal lead, while subdued hints of exotic spice add a grounded earthiness.
