Having accrued over 100 international awards, including many gold and double gold medals, Wilderer Distillery has become synonymous with quality, artistry and integrity. Isn’t it about time you’ve samples the brand of choice for connoisseurs around the world?

“GUT DING BRAUCHT WEILE” Good things take time, was one of Helmut Wilderer’s favourite mantras.

At Wilderer Distillery, they pride themselves in their everlasting pursuit of producing the best possible quality. They work closely with the farmers throughout the year in order to receive the ideal raw materials. Always in Helmut Wilderer’s true spirit, we craft the true Spirit of the Cape.

The Wilderer team refuses to compromise when it comes to the integrity of the product. This is why every step, in the process of creating their award-winning products, is carefully monitored and completed with meticulous attention to detail. Wilderer produces some of the finest Grappa from the best available Muscat, Pinotage and Shiraz grapes.

Produced in harmony with nature. The purest wine spirit, water from the Franschhoek mountains and unique Fynbos botanicals, make this Cape Gin a true South African speciality. Wilderer Fynbos Gin boasts a very well-balanced assortment of herbs, spices and zest on the nose. On the palate, it reveals juniper berries and typical Cape Fynbos in stunning depth and complexity. To be sipped neat, mixed with quality soda or tonic water.
