The Rebel trapped inside the bottle can be traced back to the brave and radical men & woman who traveled “Over Die Berg” to the once independent Republic of Swellendam.
It started as a hobby, using a converted copper geyser as a still. It was housed in our farm garage. We lit a fire at the base and our dogs used to keep warm in winter around the still.
I have been involved in many brands since starting to distill in 1994, starting with my Savingnac brandy and going on to start the gin revolution in 2007. Then I was trading as Jorgensen’s Distillery making Gin, Vodka, Absinthe, Limoncello etc. My focus now, and main brand is Procera Gin which we make in Kenya.
