Born to explore. 

 

To us, creating gin is not just about the handpicked botanicals, or our custom designed still, or the molecular technology we use to protect the delicate flowers used in our gins. It is about waking up every day and loving what we do. It’s about setting out to make the finest gin we can, one batch at a time. It’s about creating something extraordinary. Something to be proud of. That’s who we are.

 

Nestled in the little valley of De Wet in the Western Cape province of South Africa, Six Dogs is, at its heart, a tribute to the spirit of innovation and adventure, while our range of hand-crafted 100% natural premium gins pays homage to family, friends, our partners in the trade, gin-lovers in South Africa and around the world, and our ever-faithful six dogs. It began in 2013 in the most humble way: on our farm in a shed where our six dogs used to sleep, using an old copper geyser that had been welded and converted into a makeshift still by a family friend. This was how our first batch of gin was distilled.

 

When you visit our farm you will find that the dog shed has now been converted into a distillery and it is from here that Charles Bryant, our master distiller, continues to dream and experiment under the watchful eyes of our six dogs Midget, Obelix, Flea, Bodrum, Diesel and Jack. 

 

In 2021, in the adventurous spirit that is Six Dogs, we opened an office in The Netherlands from where we are looking forward to expanding our reach in Europe and growing the pack of Six Dogs fans on a global scale. We are the first and only South African craft gin brand with offices in  both the African and European continents.

Six Dogs Karoo Gin

700ml | 43% abv

 

Six Dogs Karoo gin was the first in our range and the realisation of a vision to create a gin that would stand out amongst the best in the world. A modern classic gin with a big juniper heart, Six Dogs Karoo Is a delicate and balanced gin of twelve select botanicals. Its distinguishing botanicals are grown on our farm, which intersects three different bioregions, including the succulent Karoo. It is from here that we gather the Karoo thorn flower and wild lavender that make this gin unique. Subtle citrus notes are introduced through the inclusion of limes, mandarins and farm-grown lemon buchu.

Six Dogs Blue Gin

700ml | 43% abv

 

Six Dogs Blue derives its name from the blue pea flower (Clitoria Ternatea), an antioxidant and alleged aphrodisiac in traditional medicine. As chance would have it, ‘Blue’ was also the name of the smallest dog in our original pack of six. The infusion of blue pea gives the gin its striking and entirely natural colour, while the alchemy of this unusual botanical is further revealed when the gin is mixed with a good tonic, changing the colour to light pink. The first blue gin to be launched in South Africa, Six Dogs Blue is a classic dry gin with a slightly floral character, with hints of freshly-cut lucerne over handpicked and morning-harvested rose pelargonium.

Six Dogs Pinotage Stained Gin

700ml | 43% abv

 

Six Dogs Pinotage is the love child of Six Dogs gin and our neighbour’s highly prized block of pinotage grapes. The gin itself is distilled in small batches through generous quantities of juniper and fresh citrus. It is then placed in tanks together with handpicked whole pinotage grapes for a period of several weeks to allow the gin to extract the deep red essence of this truly South African cultivar. Unique in terms of the process used, Six Dogs Pinotage combines flavour and character in such a way as to appeal to both gin and wine lovers around the world.

Six Dogs Honey Lime Gin

700ml | 43% abv

 

Six Dogs Honey Lime gin is the inevitable result of a sustainability project that began when South African bee conservation company, Bee Smiths, approached Six Dogs Distillery to relocate rescued bees to the farm where our distillery is situated. The farm, on the intersection of the Fynbos and Karoo biomes, proved to be the ideal location for the bees. Experimentation with the honey produced by these bees resulted in an irresistible gin that combines the zestiness of farm-grown limes with the contrasting subtle sweetness of the honey, and the finest botanical spirit.
