About Us

Who we are

At The Capital Distillery, Kelly and Ross have deliberately chosen a different set of activities to deliver products that has unique value to you.

We have created The Capital Distillery out of pure curiosity and are on a journey to see what's next. Our distillery manager, Scotch is usually by our side, keeping an eye on things.

*Unfortunately Ross passed away on 15 August 2022. He is no longer with us in person but his spirit, love and passion will always be present. We miss him terribly but are grateful that he chose to spend 14 years of his life with us*

Not scared of hard work, we make everything from scratch including our own neutral spirit. We are very proud and dedicated to our craft so our product remain exclusive and rare. These activities in our operations relate to delivering only the best value to our customers. Majority of the time, customers have the opportunity to see and learn about these processes while visiting us at the distillery.

We like to pay homage to the raw material that make spirits so unique in their flavour. We therefore pride our spirits as not having any additives, flavourants or colourants. Just a clean pure spirit, distilled the way they should be.


Our Values

Authenticity- we are real, do real things

Learning- always room for improvement

Honesty- we're fans of cutting through the clutter and giving you the real story! We believe that integrity forms the basis of our brand and take it into consideration for our triple bottom line.

Fun- for what else then?

Customers- it is such a privilege to have people taste, drink and enjoy what we have created and we will work relentlessly to ensure this for all time! 

The Capital Gin Process

Step number 1: Wash hands. Seems silly but as we ferment our own base neutral we have to make sure ourselves and our instruments are clean and sanitized.  We source grains from local farmers which we cook, ferment and the distill. 

This distillation takes place twice. The 3rd distillation is done in a copper potstil where we distill our gins with their botanicals using vapour infusion. 

Once we have collected our required 'hearts' from that run it then rests for a few days. From there we dilute down to 43% alcohol using spring water. It rests again and then its ready to bottle, label, sign, wax and kiss. 

That's it! We pride ourselves on not having any additives, clarifiers, purifiers, etc to our gins. What you see, smell and drink comes straight from the pots. We do not even filter our product. Just some pure, clean gin!

Last step: Cheers!
