About South African Spirits
The spirits industry is a mixture of various types of products, ranging from cream liqueur to oloroso-style sherries. There are some aged, pot-still brandies produced, but many are more suitable for mixing as a cocktail rather than sipping.

Top Picks for South Africa

Atian Rose Gin
94 points
$49.99
Brilliant light pink color. Attractive, floral aromas of Turkish rose custard dessert, lemon and lime curd pastries, hint of bergamot, and melon with an oily, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, elegant, long juniper blossoms and jam, Moroccan orange spice cake, hint of bitter herbs and pink pepper, and wet minerals finish. A soft, oily, superbly balanced floral-accented gin with great drinkability, neat, on ice, or in shaken or long cocktails.
