We had the great pleasure to sit down with Glen Bryant, founder and marketing genius behind Six Dogs Distillery, one of South Africa’s most successful Gin brands. .
Their Gin offering pays homage to traditional style gin made with local endemic botanicals while subverting convention with their Blue Gin leading innovation in the Pinotage Stained Gin.
Myself and Glen shared a Karoo Martini, a classic martini stirred over buchu vermouth washed ice. Simple, delicate and delicious. The cocktail made designed by Fermented made its debut at our very first pairing event at the Fools & Fans Festival.
We talked about tripping over dogs, how to make change blue gin to pink by adding tonic, why gin brands don’t collaborate, Gin and chocolate pairing, there humble beginnings in a barn and of course the six dogs.
