Still Bay: glorious gin and seaside splendour
Still Bay has been a favourite holiday destination for decades, thanks to its fantastic location, mild climate, and pristine beaches. Also known as the Bay of Sleeping Beauty, Still Bay is surrounded by three nature reserves and the Blombos cave that harbours evidence of a human settlement dating back to the Middle Stone Age – that’s more than 70 000 years ago! Situated on the edge of the Goukou river estuary, Still Bay is a paradise for water sport lovers of all kinds. And thanks to Inverroche Distillery gin connoisseurs can now treat their taste buds to the flavour of the unique Fynbos found in this area.
Fine gin from Fynbos
At Inverroche Fynbos botanicals, spices such as cardamom pods, coriander seeds, and berries from India and Europe are gently coaxed to release their flavours in a large copper pot still. Subterranean aquifers beneath the surrounding vines and olive groves provide the pure water needed for distillation. The result is a variety of spirits showcasing the Cape Floral Kingdom in all its glory. No visit to Still Bay is complete without a gin tasting at Inverroche! The tasting room is open between 10:00 and 16:00 from Monday to Saturday.
