The distillery is owner operated. Our products are bottled and labelled by hand. We offer an innovative product range and personal attention from fermentation to bottling.

We accept bookings and walk-ins. A booking however gives us a chance to make the experience even more memorable.

Package: R50 for 5 tastings, followed by an espresso.
Individual: R5 per tasting.
A discount will be given or tastings will be free, dependant on the amount of bottles purchased.

The Definition of a Craft Spirit

We have the privilege or working with an old copper kettle, on the Sir Robert Stanford Estate, which has over 100 years of history behind it. We have lovingly restored the distillery and use the copper kettle to produce our Husk Spirit range. Along with the old, we are also using a modern stainless steel still, which allows tourists to witness the difference between the modern and old processes.

We have natural product aged in oak barrels, distilled in small batches, no more than 800L in a batch.

We welcome you to come and experience the charm of Stanford, the history of the estate and the varied flavours of our products.
