Meet the producers: Caperitif & Swaan Tonic
Beat the heat with this one of a kind artisanal Cape drink!

Caperitif: For almost a century mixologists and barmen have been looking for Caperitif, the ‘ghost ingredient’ found in numerous cocktail recipes but not produced anywhere in the world. In 2014 a Danish mixologist approached us with the idea to recreate it and together we have given birth to the 21st century version of this truly unique Cape Aperitif.

Made from Chenin Blanc fortified with spirit and gently sweetened by the sugar of the grapes, bittered by Quinchona bark and flavoured with some 35 truly Cape ingredients such as fynbos, kalmoes and naartjies.  

This is charged with Swaan Tonic: spring water with natural botanicals – quinine, lime, cardamom and mint.
