Inception, as the name alludes to, is our flagship gin. It symbolizes our desire to create truly amazing gin with South African flair. Great care is taken to ensure that the quality of our ingredients is of the highest standard.

Our water is collected from the Albion spring in Newlands, Cape Town, which we believe releases more flavor, as there are no chemicals to alter the taste. Inception is made from either a beer or wine base, each of which each brings through a unique flavour that complements our unique botanical recipe. Both are double distilled and during the second distillation are infused with our well balanced mix of botanicals.

INCEPTION WINE BASE

INCEPTION WINE BASE

Very smooth, elegant, full bodied gin with a slight hint of jasmine and corainder on the palate. Light tones of buchu, rooibos and a hint of citrus can be picked up in the after taste. Drink on its own or add a dash of light tonic water, gooseberries and rosemary  or a slice of grapefruit for a superb South African G&T.

500ml – R195 (Incl VAT)
750ml – R290 (Incl VAT)

INCEPTION BEER BASE

INCEPTION BEER BASE

A more robust, punchy gin. It has a slight caramel, ovaltine flavour on the nose from the initial beer distillation. This transcends into the traditional juniper berry flavour and picks up the lemon, lime and spices which carry through into the aftertaste.  Drink on its own or add Mediterranean tonic water, a sliver of orange rind and a piece of cinnamon bark for a G&T with a twist.

500ml – R195 (Incl VAT)
750ml – R290 (Incl VAT)

HIGH TEA GIN

HIGH TEA GIN

A refreshingly complex gin with similar flavours on the palate as the grape distilled Inception  gin, but with lingering undertones of rooibos and honeybush, which are added post distillation. Easy drinking on its own or with a block of ice and slice of lemon and a dash of light tonic or sparkling water. Unique South African flavours and refreshingly different from other gins.

750ml – R290 (Incl VAT)

Cask Aged

Woodstock’s Grape distilled Inception gin is matured in American Oak barrels for a period of three to four months. During this time the stringency of the Grape distilled Inception gin is lowered and rich vanilla and marzipan flavours are now present in the gin. This provides for an extra premium gin, which can easily be  sipped on its own or paired with lime and red peppercorns and Woodstock’s natural tonic water.

750ml – R450 (Incl VAT)
