One of our favourite guy's muso and foodie J’Something is launching a new craft gin, Jin Gin. J’Something teamed up with local craft gin experts, Craft Link - the makers of the award-winning Ginology Gin, and the result is not only a gin that has great flavour, but that has a personality too.
'I wanted to do something that I love. I’ve never been much of a drinker, but a good G&T always hit the spot. The team at Craft Link helped me create a gin that not only suits my audience and their palates but that also represents something different in the market; ultimately it represents my story. I mean it’s still a gin, it’s just ‘something different’, J Something says.
Jin Gin is locally produced and inspired by J’Something’s Portuguese and South African heritage. The variants within the Jin Gin Collection include Rooibos, Orange and Honey; Tomato and Sweet Piquant Peppers and Honey and Olives.
All the flavours tie into his career and passion for food and music and each variant has its own story to tell. The Rooibos, Orange and Honey, J’Somethings’ favourite, expertly blends the flavours of world-famous oranges from the South of Portugal with South African Rooibos and Honey – his favourite pre-gig drink.
Jin Gin will be available from 01 December from selected Pick ‘n Pay and Ultra Bottle Stores and will retail from R390 for a bottle.
