Relihan Distillery is reviving an old tradition of distilling on the family farm SpesBona, in a quiet corner of the Riebeeksrivier valley in the heart of the Swartland

We offer three local gins
of superior quality and an aperitif

SpesBona
Relihan family farm

SpesBona has been in the Relihan family since 1865 and inhabited by successive generations living close to the land all with an artisanal aptitude – from cartwrights and clockmakers to farmers and distillers!

We are blessed with access to our own springs deep in the kloofs of the Kasteelberg.

Seasonal variations in our products is to be expected and makes our gin extra special.

Slow, handcrafted and using only


the best portion of each distilling run is our focus
