Six Dogs Karoo Gin
No one really knows where the Karoo begins and ends. We do know, however, that in the little valley of De Wet, nestled between the Breede River Valley and the Hex River Valley, the wild things grow! Using some of these wild plants of the Karoo in the Gin, with home grown botanicals and by supporting neighbouring farmers who grow specific fruit for the distillery. The distillery was built with a view of the mountains and the greater Karoo, looking up towards the kloof from where the purest mountain water is aquired – and creating the amzing flovour that is Six Dogs. In the evenings, you can just see the lights of Worcester behind you as you take in the beautiful view up the valley and wonder if the Karoo doesn’t actually begin right there at the Distillery.
“We want people to come to our Distillery and see things they have never seen before”.
The Botanicals, the Gin and the Tasting.
“We’ve created a unique and intricate Gin of twelve select botanicals, distilled and bottled by us at Six Dogs Distillery. Sip it and you will pick up the paired notes of Juniper and Wild Lavender that introduces the Karoo. What follows is a fresh medley of citrus including Limes, Clemengold and farm grown Lemon Buchu, all shouting to come out of the glass. Cassia, Chamomile and Angelica bind the heart of the Gin while the delicate flower of the Acacia Thorn adds a top note of soft sweetness. Six Dogs is best enjoyed as is, over ice and with a good tonic; alternatively served with a garnish”
*We enjoy Six Dogs Karoo Gin with just a simple twist of Lime rind or a Sprig of Lemon Buchu (must be the lemon one). Add the gin to large blocks of ice, add your favourite indian tonic – and then the garnish. Or get as creative as you want with whatever garnish is in season.”

Slaughter House American Whiskey
An irresistible American Whiskey with endless layers and an everlasting finish.
-Best in Class ‘Whiskey’ – 2015 Whiskies of the World Awards
-Gold Medal ‘Whiskey’ – 2015 Whiskies of the World Awards
After spending 9 years in American oak, the spirit was further matured in French oak barrels that previously held Napa Valley Bordeaux varietal red wine which added perfumed aromatics and rounded out the mouthfeel. The spirit was then tamed with pristine water originating from a hillside spring found on a property 2000 feet above the Alexander Valley in California.
Intense and inviting with caramelized sugar, baking spices, dark fruits, butterscotch and vanilla notes. The palate is smooth, ultra rich and layered. The finish is impressive with honey, toast and loads of caramel.
Gold Medal, 2014 International Whisky Competition
KOVAL Distillery’s organic, single barrel bourbon has the requisite mash bill of at least 51% corn, but instead of the usual rye or wheat supplement, they have included one of the main cereals of Asia and Africa. Millet is a gluten-free ancient sustenance grain, and like corn, has a history of working in the spirits industry, albeit in Nepal, where it has long been celebrated as a libation of choice.
Tucked away in a charred new American oak barrel to age, millet and corn learn to complement each other, neither taking the lead. Out of the bottle, this duet opens with notes of mango chutney, while the millet renders a soft whisper of vanilla throughout. Then harmonizing, the grains sing with the sweetness of apricot custard. This pair finishes with peppery caramel, a diminuendo into a wisp of clove-spiked tobacco lingering on the tongue.
