A Martini for Men’s Month

A Martini for Men’s Month

Celebrate Martini Day this June 19th with a local twist on a classic!

No gin cocktail is more iconic than the Martini, made famous by the likes of James Bond and Sir Winston Churchill. Shaken or stirred there isn’t much of a difference, unless you’re trying to look cool. Spotting a classic Martini is easy, the clarity and two olives are the giveaway in this spirit forward cocktail.

Here’s one with a bit of a homegrown twist… an easy to mix Cape Town Gin Martini.


50ml Cape Town Classic Dry Gin25ml dry vermouth1 green olive or lemon rindIce


Chill a martini glass with ice. Add all ingredients into a stirring beaker with ice and stir for 20 seconds. Remove the ice from the martini glass and strain the beaker into the chilled glass. Garnish with a green olive or lemon rind. Et voilà!

What’s more is that June is National Men's Health Month and the Cape Town Gin and Spirits Company is proud to be involved as a supporter of the Men’s Foundation, collaborating by contributing a portion of every bottle of Cape Town Classic Dry Gin sold to the NGO. Show your support for the cause this June and get your hands on bottle of Cape Town Classic Dry Gin.

Be sure to follow Cape Town Gin & Spirits Company on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date on all their latest news and book your tasting at the new Cape Town Gin & Spirits Emporium in the V&A Waterfront on their website.
