Fine spirits at Relihan Distillery

The past ten years has seen South Africa become hip to artisanal beverages like craft beer and coffee roasteries, and boutique gin is the latest tipple to garner appeal amongst those with a taste for the finer things in life.  Relihan Distillery is reviving a Swartland tradition of distilling on the family farm: in this case, SpesBona. The farm has been in the Relihan family since 1865 and occupied by successive generations of Relihan’s living close to the land, all with a creative flair. We’re talking cart wrights, clockmakers, farmers and distillers!
