Merry Gin-mas: Time Anchor Distillery Mirari Blue Orient Spiced Gin

GINS TO CHRISTMAS (12)Thank you for sharing the 12 Gins To Christmas adventure with me.

It’s been gin-tastic and a blast!

Today we enjoy a gin which is not included in the Daily Drams gin advent calendar.  This incredible creation is insta-envy worth for the magical transformation which occurs before your eyes….

The Time Anchor Distillery Mirari Blue Orient Spiced Gin is one of the top instagram-gins in South Africa.

Crafted from a selection of exotic hand-picked botanicals, including cardamom, grapefruit, grains of paradise, jasmine, vanilla and a touch of rose water. This gin is coloured by nature through a delicate infusion of blue pea flowers. Add tonic water to it and watch how the colour magically changes!


About Time Anchor Distillery

Their Spirits are a labour of love, intellectual curiosity and the commitment to the art and science of craft distilling as well as the soul of the craft movement which inspires them every day. Time Anchor Distillery was created by longtime friends Warrick and Shanna-Rae who were inspired to share their passion for craft with the world.

They believe in inspiring their passion and challenging the conventions the way in which they inspire their passion.

They are situated in a new development in the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg called Aerial Empire, which is just 500 meters from Market on Main. Making them the quintessential Joburg-based craft distillery.

I’ve already posted about the magic that is the Mirari Blue Orient Spiced gin; read about it here.

Today we enjoy the Mirari Blue Orient Spiced gin as per the Time Anchor team’s suggestion:

With a slice of crisp green apple, whole cassia/cinnamon stick, fresh mint and lots of ice, topped with a premium quality Tonic.
