Why Mirari Gin is your go-to summer drink!

Whether relaxing on a boat, sitting by the beach, or simply sipping in your backyard, summer was made to enjoy! There’s nothing better than soaking up the sun with friends and throwing back a glass of something cold. It goes without saying that summer day drinks need to be refreshing in order to beat the heat — which is why we’re obsessed with one of the most iconic drinks in bar history, Gin & Tonic.

Not only is the G&T a staple, it’s also perfect for summer, and not just because of its thirst-quenching capabilities. And we have found the perfect gin just for you — Mirari Gin.

The home of Mirari Gin is Time Anchor Distillery, nestled in the heart of Johannesburg’s trendy Maboneng precinct. The City of Gold’s first artisan distillery is a place where creativity and science merge into the harmonious, delicate creation of hand-made and distinctly artisanal spirits.

The image of gin has shifted, from its standard gin and tonics solely flavoured by lemon garnishes to the epitome of modern luxury with a bespoke quality, as local audiences have moved over to gins infused with a range of fragrant botanicals and made locally.

The Mirari Gin range comes in three delicious variants, each with their own unique signature. Amber African Botanical Gin is infused with a whopping 13 botanicals, including, Honeybush, Rose Geranium, Sour Figs and Boekenhout Honey. The second,  Pink Damask Rose Gin  is distilled with over 1000 damask roses, chamomile, grapefruit, cubeb berries, green cardamom, then infused with rose water. The third  Blue Orient Gin includes the flavours of Cardamom, Grapefruit, Grains of Paradise, Ginger and Cassia Bark. Naturally coloured through the subtle infusion of blue pea flowers, the gin magically transforms from blue to pink when tonic is added. It is evident that with each variant of Mirari Gin, Wilby has focused on the creation of unique and innovative flavours, with captivating personal signatures and striking sensory narratives at their heart.

The creation of gin is a delicate art.

Serving a fragrant taste symphony, Mirari Gin is destined to become an international brand that transcends local shores, but remains firmly South African in its flavours and roots: focused on innovation, inspired by curiosity and founded on the spirit of craftsmanship.
