We can’t believe that it is already 2015 – the last year went by in a whirlwind of builders, dust and gorgeous Cape Town days. We had hoped to launch our gin before the end of 2014, but equipment teething problems mean that it will be a Q1 2015 launch. We’ve learnt a lot along the way and have been helped by many amazing people.
We’re very happy to report that our living space is now finished: and pleased to say that the 6 months of dust, noise and cold showers were worth it. We’re really happy in our new home and enjoy “living in a distillery” even if it’s not quite fully operational yet!
Apologies for the lack of photos and lack of blog updates. We’re having problems with the server but hope to get that sorted out soon. All the best to you all for a happy 2015!
What a nice surprise when I logged in (more in hope than anticipation) and found that Hope on Hopkins blog was alive and well again! I liked your Freudian slip in message above “we hope to LUNCH our gin” – I am sure it will be a favourite lunch (and sundowner) tipple!
Love and here’s to a great year ahead – M and T (not G and T!)
Hi – congratulations on the new venture! Are you guys open to spirit-loving visitors?
I just found this blog, you guys look great! Believe it or not, we are now living in Nairobi (17 years after you gave me a ride through here).
And we are planning on coming to visit Cape Town in early June.
We’d love to catch up with you guys, and with Rosie and Sean, and Carol, if they are around too…
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll catch you up on the last 15 years or so – hope we can make it happen!
