South Africa is falling in love with gin. Lorna Scott is the owner of the wildly successful Inverroche Distillery.

(This is an article from our archives. The interview took place on 5 July 2015.)

---

Lorna Scott is the owner of Inverroche Distillery, the maker of Fynbos flavoured gin.

Lorna Scott’s Inverroche produces three distinctively different styles of gin – Classic, Verdant and Amber.

According to legend, 11th century Italian monks invented gin for medicinal purposes.

Lorna Scott’s distillery is built from local limestone and surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and Fynbos.

Lorna Scott’s distillery’s unique floral shaped logo symbolises the interaction between the water and rocks that supports the flora of the region.

Mike Wills (in for Bruce Whitfield on The Money Show) interviewed Scott for his weekly "ShapeShifter" feature.

Watch the interview in the video below (and scroll down for quotes from it).

We export to 13 countries and have been doubling our sales every six months, all through word-of-mouth! The story behind the distillery is driving the whole thing. You take a bottle home and it becomes a conversation piece.

Lorna Scott

Our vision is to stay small and think big.

Lorna Scott

It’s a very labour intensive business. We do everything by hand.

Lorna Scott

We want to create something that speaks of a contemporary South Africa that is modern and sophisticated.
