Gin Tasting

Tasting experiences at The Barn Restaurant begin with The Capital Gin – made here in Pretoria and served as our craft gin of choice.

Taste and learn about the 3 Capital Gin flavours:

Alchemist:The word conjures up an image of a bustling chemist in a laboratory trying to create the elixir of immortality. The Alchemist has notes of cinnamon, cloves and roasted citrus. Spicy and vibrant, this gin is perfectly paired with Indian food.

Indigo:Tall dark and handsome, this gin reflects confidence and passion.  Flavoured with lavender and rosemary straight from the garden, it is balanced by notes of orange. This gin is big, bold and wonderful in gin-based cocktails.  The robust rosemary and orange flavours stand out wonderfully in a traditional G&T.

Pink Lady:Feminine and floral as she may seem, this Pink Lady can hold her own in any conversation. Flavoured with hibiscus and thyme out of the garden, it is perfectly balanced with vanilla. This is a sipping gin – soft and mellow with gentle grapefruit notes.

Le Courier Chenin Blanc Old Road Wine Co.: The Old Road Wine Co. Originals range recalls the stories of the legendary characters who shaped the Franschhoek community in its early years.

The Fat Man Pinotage Old Road Wine Co.: The Old Road Wine Co. Originals range recalls the stories of the legendary characters who shaped the Franschhoek community in its early years.
