Fynbos infused Alchemy of gin Full on flavor Sceletium infused
Writer's block

Ours is about 3 feet by 3 feet, and on our left is the account's block. The marketing block is down the hall.

We're joking. Obviously.

Ours is at least 5 by 5, and on Wednesdays we're allowed to write in coffee shops to maintain the illusion that we're "successful" and "writerly".

Coming up with a write up for the simple sake of a write up does, however, become difficult when we're staring complete lack of creativity right in the face. But apparently asking management to cancel all the deals for the day isn't a viable fix.

As they so delicately put it, it'd be like a comedian having the option to suddenly cancel a show if they're not feeling up to it. Not on our watch, they said. You'll do a write up whether you like it or not, they said. And be funny, they said.

So here we are, doing a write up and being funny.

Bear witness to MONKS Mysterium, the firstborn gin. Infused with an elixir of fynbos and sceletium, it’s a taste of the utterly miraculous.

For over a decade, serial entrepreneurs and self-confessed adventurers Nic and Di Davis have shared a farm with fifth-generation Breede Valley wine farmers Coenie and Edelgard Lategan. In late 2017 the friends decided to bring their vast and varied experience to the realm of independent gin distilling.

MONKS gins are handcrafted and double-distilled in small batches using a hybrid artisanal still called ‘Jennifer’, named after Nic’s mother and of Nic’s own design.

Expect intensely flavour-forward botanicals, nine of them hand-picked and many endemic to the area. Combine with crystal-clear mountain waters and the result is a rewarding one, featuring ripples of citrus, berries and Cape Buchu.

Product Features
  • 750ml
  • Alcohol: 43%
  • Made using the unique fynbos from the Western Cape, sceletium, a range of citrus fruits and the traditional botanicals of juniper berries, coriander, orris root and angelica root
  • On the nose, sweet melon and caramel aromas start the journey, leading to undertones of orange peel and herbal garrique – all framed by the juniper and angelica components
  • The sweetness follows onto the palate on entry with a juicy mouthful that becomes direr on the finish with a taste profile of juniper, buchu and citrus
  • Perfect serve: Double shot of Mysterium, half a shot of simple syrup (get creative with green tea, cucumber and mint infusions), half a shot of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice. Fill your glass with ice and top up with Fitch & Leeds Indian tonic water – fresh mint to garnish
