Still 33 Flivver Rooibos Citrus Gin
Dry White Varieties (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower)


Staying true to our anti-prohibition style, our Gin is named using a prohibition era slang word for an old Ford (Flivver), which was the bootleggers’ vehicle of choice in the era of illegal moonshiners and backwoods stills. The main botanicals of Juniper berries, Rooibos tea, Grapefruit, Lemon and Coriander are prominent and easily identifiable in our Gin. The citrus provides a fresh flavour which comes through easily on the nose along with the juniper berries. The rooibos is comforting and subtle, with the colour of a freshly brewed cup of tea adds a sense of familiarity. Coriander adds a hint of spiciness to make it an interesting and well-rounded gin. Flivver is a South African take on the classic, with flavours and botanicals that evoke emotions of comfort, joy and celebration. A classic pairing with mint, blueberry and lemon enhance the sweetness in the citrus. While a garnish of rosemary or thyme enhances the earthy rooibos and juniper combination. It should be paired with a good quality tonic or enjoyed neat with just a simple slice of lemon or grapefruit.
