APERITIFS & BITTERS
Chenin Blanc fortified with spirit, gently sweetened by the sugar of the grapes, bittered by Quinchona bark and flavored with 35 truly Cape ingredients such as fynbos, kalmoes and naartjies. Caperitif was first made in the Cape at the turn of the previous century. During the gold and diamond rush years in SA it was a very prominent and popular product both locally and internationally. The brand and packaging remain true to the Cape of the old days but with a modern, fresh, 21st century twist or two while still fitting into our range of products and our brands. We had never heard of Caperitif (or thought to make vermouth) when Danish mixologist Lars Lyndgaard approached us with the idea of reviving The Ghost Ingredient. When Adi Badenhorst heard the story about this long forgotten Cape legend he was immediately interested and we started experimenting.
