The Woodstock Gin Company


The Woodstock Gin Company was founded in 2014 by Simon Von Witt, a passionate distiller of Fynbos infused South African gin. As his passion for creating new recipes and distilling alcohol grew, so did his desire to share the final product of these new and delicious creations with other people, and let them know that gin is so much more than Juniper berry-infused alcohol.

our flagship gin

Inception as the name alludes was our first gin to be sold publicly. Inception encapsulates our passion for gin making with a unique, elegantly smooth, herbaceous flavour that has subtle undertones of our fynbos blend, including rooibos, buchu and wild rosemary to name a few.

our name

Located at 399 Albert Road, adjacent to Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, our name follows on from the British trend of naming distilleries after the town or area in which they were built. It was thus decided to call our small yet highly productive distillery Woodstock Gin Co.

Our vision 

We believe that South Africa can produce high-quality handcrafted gin that would make even the Brits turn their heads. Our aim is to produce the finest quality premium gin in South Africa at an affordable price. We open our doors to the public from Monday to Saturday and urge people to venture in for a tasting and experience what the Woodstock Gin Co has to offer.
