Written, simmered, grilled, sliced and baked by South African clever food "maker-uppers" who mixed Gin with their food to achieve new flavours, textures and experiences to bring the world a book which gives Tonic Water a run for its money.



The famous South African Rose Geranium infused in the Floral Gin becomes delightful and complex, a showpiece of this recipe collection, and has brought new flavour to cooking. Extracts from the flower - also known to have age defying qualities - are used in skin creams.

Ginologist Spice, Citrus and Floral Gins each won awards at the 2017 Michaelangelo Wine and Spirits Awards in South Africa.
