Phantom Craft Gin
The Phantom Gin Story
Knysna is home to the haunting beauty of Africa’s southernmost Afromontane forest. Deep within the forest a creature known only to this part of the world exists – the Phantom Moth. Phantom is named after this ghost moth and pays tribute to the wild spirits that dwell in this delicate ecoregion. From the majestic elephants whose trails are long forgotten to the slow-footed dwarf chameleon and regal Knysna Lourie to name a few. This London Dry style gin is handcrafted from botanicals sourced from Knysna and infused with natural fulvic trace minerals that lend to its unique earthy colour and offer you a taste of the ancient forest.
The spirit base is crafted from the distillery’s handmade grain alcohol. The gin is macerated with the botanicals overnight and triple cold-distilled with botanical vapour infusions. Created using carefully selected ingredients: Juniper, Coriander, Sweet Orange Peel and Lion’s Tail sourced from Knysna with the Fulvic Trace Mineral added after distillation which does not impart a flavour to the gin but turns it jet black in the bottle. The mineral is plant based and 100% natural not created from dye or additives.
