More about Bloedlemoen Gin
It all started in 2015, when three food and drink industry specialists came up with idea to create this proudly South African gin.
And thank a juicy bloedlemoen for this concept, because the world of gin has been better ever since this crimson citrus landed in our glasses.
Bloedlemoen is made from Tarocco Blood Orange. This handcrafted, small batch gin is made from ten natural botanicals, layered with the warmth of selected spices.
Founding owner of the premium drinks company Truman & Orange, Rowan Leibbrandt, decided to invest in Bloedlemoen and says, “Truman & Orange has always been about offering South Africans choice and uncompromising quality. We’ve been watching the developing local gin scene closely as gin’s prominence continues to grow internationally. The South African gin category is one of the fastest growing in the worlds. We believe that the Bloedlemoen brand and its quality liquid are on par with our range of hand-selected, premium, international brands. We are thrilled to be in a position to help grow this superior local gin to scale.”
Other than the Bloedlemoen Classic – best enjoyed with premium Indian tonic garnished with a slice of orange (fresh or dried) and a cinnamon stick – there are also some other gin varieties to indulge in.
Amber Gin is made with the same ten signature botanicals and created with a special selection of locally forged fynbos and honeybush to create a perfectly balanced and entirely unique gin infusion (have it on the rocks with a cut of orange zest and tonic).
And ho-ho-ho, the limited Christmas-only edition has the aroma of decadent Christmas cake and marzipan, along with the taste of caramalised citrus, spice and all things festive.
