'Tis the season to sip and savour a South African classic

Celebrate the festive season the traditional way with Wixworth Gin. A Classic. Originally Created

December 2019: The festive season is a time of year where we can come together and unwind over a few drinks to celebrate our traditions, relationships, and successes. Family, friends, food, and fun are all very much part of the festivities, and Wixworth Gin is the classic you need to add to your drinks table to complement the season.

A nod to the past, staying true, and embracing the new. Here’s to being a classic.

The Wixworth journey began with a desire to create a unique South African gin. We explored the gin-making methods and recipes dating back to the 17th century, which inspired us to create a gin that we could call our own. A gin that embraced tried-and-tested techniques and ingredients, but one that stayed true to its roots. This is the spirit of “being a classic”.

A distinctive taste made to celebrate every occasion.

Handcrafted from six botanicals, Wixworth evokes the subtle flavours and aromas that are unmistakably South African. It’s an exquisitely balanced, delicately fragranced gin, that is crisp and dry with a dominant juniper flavour, hints of spice, and nuanced citrus notes.
At the heart of Wixworth is a unique natural ingredient that puts a spin on a traditional dry gin. The sundried leaves of the indigenous renosterbos (dicerothamnus rhinocerotis) render a refreshing, herbaceous infusion that awakens a unique sensory experience of vast South African vistas.

A classic serving perfectly poised to shake up the festive season.
There’s nothing that raises the spirits quite like Wixworth. Whether you’re savouring it in the comfort of your home or the surroundings of your favourite holiday destination, a Wix & Tonic is a simple, yet sophisticated way to celebrate the festive season.

Wix & Tonic: • 50ml Wixworth Gin • 200ml plain Tonic Water • Garnish with a wheel of lime
Lime, not lemon! Adding a lime wheel to the mix instantly enhances Wixworth’s natural orange peel flavours.

Protecting a classic
We are passionate about conserving all that makes us original and dedicated to the survival of all things classically South African. Our rhinos are very much a part of what makes South Africa unique, and the conservation of this beautiful species is a cause that lies very close to our hearts. We believe that saving endangered rhinos from extinction is something to which we can collectively raise a glass. For every bottle sold, Wixworth contributes a percentage to the stoprhinopoaching.com initiative, so you can feel happy that you are not only buying something special, but that you are also giving back to a good cause. After all, isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
