Clifton Gin: all about skills development and pristine beaches

Clifton Gin: all about skills development and pristine beaches

Clifton Collection’s founder, Silvana Bottega, is the personification of long summers on Clifton Beach, which is also a main inspiration behind the brand. Warm summer days spent by a pristine, refreshing aquamarine sea … sunrise walks along the Cape’s Clifton beach… a gentle breeze and the sweet-salty mist of the sea. All this stayed with Silvana through her life, creating a “place of memory” through her spirit and perfume range, Clifton. WPP Fellowship Early in her life Silvana was a WPP Fellow and built her career in marketing and brand consultancies across Asia Pacific, Europe and Africa. She writes for numerous local luxury publications, contributes to international media and engages in televised debate. She has enjoyed a brief course in the world of perfumery in Paris which cemented her love of that sensory art form.  In addition her passion for wine and spirits has seen her at the helm of marketing for Bottega Family Wine for over a decade, prior to creating the Clifton range.

The Clifton Gin range consists of a sipping gin and a cocktail gin: 

Clifton Sipping Gin is a rare expression of a fine sipping gin – a perfect serve straight up over ice. The floral top-notes are balanced with a creamy mouthfeel and a distinctive caramelised flavour from the use of Cape honeybush.

This perfumed Rare Cape gin offers numerous floral accords including the soothing notes of chamomile blossoms, lavender and Cape snowbush. This is an exceptionally smooth and eminently drinkable gin which is complex, long and offers a honeyed tea note.

Drink Clifton Sipping Gin straight up on the rocks or mix into a more traditional cocktail.

Clifton Cocktail Gin  is a clean and classic juniper dominant gin with a blend of mineral and menthol-kissed notes of Cape Sea kelp and Cape snowbush.

Clifton Cocktail Gin captures the fresh taste of the crisp Atlantic Ocean.  Top notes of vibrant citrus peel with cucumber are bolstered by the redolent minty notes of the fynbos buchu, one of the signature flora of the Cape. Clifton Cocktail Gin is an exceptionally refreshing gin that delights the palate and is the ultimate mixologists gin. 

  • SA Craft Gin Awards 2019 – gold

  • Clifton Gin has been carefully crafted after numerous trials to result in an elixir that was award-winning with its first release on both gins by master distiller, Kobus Gelderblom.
