Elephant Gin is an award-winning, handcrafted London Dry Gin. And while it’s inspired by Africa, Elephant Gin is actually produced in Germany. This gin is made using 14 different botanicals, including some unusual African ingredients like Baobab, the Buchu plant, Devil’s Claw, and African Wormwood. All of the ingredients are hand-selected to limit the impurities and to ensure that only the best quality ingredients are used.
This unique gin is produced using the traditional method of copper still distillation. Using the “one-shot” method, the botanicals are left to macerate together for one day to extract the most flavour. This distillation process gives Elephant Gin its purity, complexity, and smoothness.
Unlike most alcohol brands, Elephant Gin gives back to what initially inspired its creation. Ever since the first bottle was sold in 2013, 15% of all proceeds are given to two African elephant foundations that support the preservation of African wildlife. Elephant Gin is refined in small batches of 600-700 bottles and each batch is named after elephants of the past and present that their partner foundations work to protect.
