"An Earthy, pure, dry and rustic African charm"
Okavango Gins 'The Sentinel' is our foundation Gin and one that epitomizes what we believe in, locally sourced botanicals, pure Okavango water and an age old distillation technique crafted out in Nature.
Our core ingredient is something we discovered by chance. The Mopane seed has trace elements of the same sort found in Juniper, the core of all gins. This unique and bold African flair has given our gin its signature flavor.
Crafted to celebrate the sunset, The Sentinel is a gin with a unique, bold but equally as palatable profile, giving you an uncomplicated refined and defined recipe
"Out in Nature, our insipiration"
Our traditional copper pot still overlooks the Tustsubega floodplain where the sand and Papyrus filtered waters pay homage to the thousand mile meander from the Okavango's origins in the highlands of Central Angola.
A gin born out of a love for the wilderness, our distillery is situated in an area true to its ethos, wild and free.
Completely off grid and hidden under an Ebony Tree forest, our gin is made quietly out in Nature. At night, distant calls of Lions accompany the macerating gin and by day the sound of breaking branches mark the presence of bull Elephants.
Okavango Gin is crafted passionately out in a wild part of Botswana, celebrating those who enjoy a good Gin at sunset.
"Born from a love for the wilderness and the celebration of the sundowner"
Okavango Gin was founded in 2018 by a handful of like minded naturalists, safari guides, botany enthusiasts and hospitality experts.
Since the inception of 'safari' hundreds of years ago on the plains of East Africa, Gin & Tonic has been used to remedy malaria and to reward a long hard day out in 'dusty' Africa.
Together our team has pooled experience and passion to produce a Gin to honor those who have been courteous to this age old tradition.
