Inverroche Gin Academy: Discover the secrets of South African gin at Ellerman House

In the posh Bantry Bay district of Cape Town, rises the magnificent Ellerman House with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. This luxurious property offers its guests an exclusive and secluded atmosphere with only eleven rooms, two suites and two private villas. The impressive art gallery houses original works by renowned South African artists, while the spa offers a sauna, steam room and a variety of treatments for relaxation and recreation.

Culinary experiences at Ellerman House

The culinary team, consisting of Chef Kieran Whyte and Culinary Director Peter Tempelhoff, takes guests on a journey through modern South African cuisine. Exquisite wines from the in-house Wine Gallery perfectly complement every dish. Since 2020, rooms have also been converted into Sleep Rooms to promote deep sleep for guests.

The fascination of the Fynbos region

Ellerman House is located in the middle of the Cape’s unique fynbos region, which delights botanists and tourists alike. In 2020, the renowned noble distillery Inverroche created a special gin for the luxury hotel that captures the flavors of the endemic flora.

Inverroche Gin Academy

The Inverroche Gin Academy recently opened at Ellerman House, offering guests of the luxury hideaway the opportunity to experience the distillation process firsthand and experiment with South African flavors and aromas. Every Thursday evening, guests are introduced to the art of gin making, from selecting Fynbos botanicals to bottling their own personal creation.

The collaboration between Ellerman House and Inverroche

Since 2020, Ellerman House has partnered with Inverroche, a fine distillery founded by Lorna Scott and known for its use of fynbos plants. The exclusive Ellerman House Botany Bay Gin combines the flavors and aromas of the endemic garden that surrounds the boutique hotel. Lorna Scott personally collected sprigs of confetti bush and blossoms of musk rose for the ingredient selection during her wanderings around Bantry Bay, and now returns to the luxury hotel for the launch of the Gin Academy.
