Elephant Gin is an award-winning handcrafted premium gin of 45% alcoholic volume made with rare African botanicals. All ingredients are hand-selected, bottles custom-made, labels hand-written and production efforts controlled by working in small batches. Elephant Gin is distilled using 14 botanicals, including rare African ingredients that haven�t been used in gin-making before. The botanicals are hand-selected to limit any impurities and ensure only the highest quality ingredients are used.

The gin�s nose 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 in a cocktail.

The design of Elephant Gin�s logo as a stamp is a nod to the letters sent home by the 19th century explorers of Africa, in which they described the botanical discoveries they made. Writing letters was the only form of communication at the time, without which Elephant Gin may have never heard the tales of these explorers. Each bottle is custom-made, adorned with hand-written labels and embossed with a crest.

The corks are sourced from Portugal, where the natural cork is harvested every seven years. Elephant Gin names each batch after past great tuskers or elephants that its partner foundations currently help to protect.

Gin and Elephants. As combinations go, it�s not an obvious one. But Elephant Gin is more than just the obvious choice. In fact, the idea to make an Africa-inspired gin encompassed more than just sourcing rare botanicals. Elephant Gin also gives back to what inspired the gin in the first place. From the very first bottle sold in September 2013, Elephant Gin has been giving 15% of all proceeds to two African elephant foundations to support the preservation of the African wildlife and help ensure that future generations will also be able to explore these magnificent landscapes.

While its story started in South Africa, Elephant Gin is handmade in Germany with a focus on highest quality production standards. The idea for an African-inspired gin evolved while reminiscing about the so-called �sundowner� drinks after a day out in the South African bush. These sunset cocktails are a big tradition in South Africa � and more often than not, they consist of a G&T. The idea was backed by a mutual love of exotic African botanicals and a realisation that these would make interesting additions to a premium gin, alongside more traditional botanicals such as juniper and orange peel.

Elephant Gin is crafted one hour east of Hamburg, Germany, using resolutely artisan production methods. Staying true to the definition of a London Dry Gin, Elephant Gin's flavour is achieved through the distillation of exclusively natural botanicals, whilst ensuring no artificial flavouring or sweetening is added post distillation.

All of Elephant Gin's ingredients are carefully selected and balanced. Once in the still, using the �one-shot� method, they are left to macerate together for a day, guaranteeing the optimal level of flavour is extracted.
