...West Coast Distillers is an amazing craft distillery based in the relaxed, windsurfing town Langebaan, on the West Coast. They are the proud producers of the Caspyn West Coast Dry Gin, Belladonna Nightshade Gin and three flavours of Mutiny Bitters.
Had it not been for a chance encounter between long-time friends – Shane Smith and Shaun Bebington, on a flight from London to Croatia in 2017, the world would never have tasted their refreshing gins.
Shane and Shaun have combined their passion for new adventures, good quality spirits and hard-working ethics to make West Coast Distillery a gin brand of note. Their aim is simply; ‘To produce good quality, great-tasting spirits with a passion for keeping unique and interesting at every turn.’
So far, they have not disappointed. West Coast Distillers won a Gold Medal in the SA Craft Gin Awards 2019 for their Caspyn West Coast Dry Gin at a prestigious annual award ceremony that recognises the best craft gin makers in South Africa. The event is sponsored by the retail giant, Checkers Liquor Shop.
