Seeking Hope For South African Distilling Cocktails Distilled

    • Food

With the possibility of a fourth alcohol ban looming, leaving the South African liquor industry questioning its own survival, we talk to Lucy Beard, co-owner and distiller at Hope Distillery. 
Started in 2014, Hope was the first licensed gin distillery to open in Cape Town and has since built a reputation not only for their own distillations but also the guidance they have showing to fledgling brands around the country.  
We talk to Lucy about the bans, their spirits and what the future might hold.
