Elephant Gin is a new handcrafted London Dry Gin (45% ABV), made with carefully selected ingredients to capture the essence of Africa.

Inspired by the pioneering spirit of 19th century explorers and the botanical discoveries they made, Elephant Gin is produced for adventurers and travellers of today. The company contributes 15% of all profits to two African elephant foundations to support the preservation of the African wildlife and help ensure future generations will also be able to explore these magnificent landscapes.

The gin is distilled using fourteen botanicals, including rare African ingredients sourced from the length and breadth of the continent to create the gin's distinctive flavour profile.

These include the savannah's "superfruit" Baobab, the extraordinary Buchu plant with a flavour similar to blackcurrant, and the African Wormwood introducing a sharp floral note. Locally sourced spring water, fresh apples and other select ingredients enhance the purity and smoothness of the gin's finish.

Made in Germany, in small batches, Elephant Gin is produced using the traditional method of copper still distillation.

The gin's distinct nose first yields a subtle juniper aroma, with an undertone of mountain pine and other herbaceous notes. The taste is complex but strikingly smooth, encompassing floral, fruity and spicy flavours which can be enjoyed both straight and or in cocktail.

Elephant Gin's bottles are custom-made, adorned with hand-written labels, embossed with a crest and sealed with natural cork. Each batch is named after past great tuskers or elephants that Elephant Gin's partners currently help to protect.

Founders Robin Gerlach and Tessa Wienker are friends who were inspired to create Elephant Gin following their own adventures in Africa.

With a vision to conserve the wildlife they feel so passionately for, Robin and Tessa decided to launch a product that would help conservation trusts. They strongly believe that this generation has a responsibility to support the African wildlife today, so others can continue to enjoy it in the future.

Elephant Gin is imported exclusively by Luxe Wine + Spirits. Available in 500mL bottles. For all enquiries and orders contact drink@luxewinespirits.com.au or call 0413 007 970.
