Juno Small Batch Premium Gin
Juno is at it again – exploring and innovating. This time making her way further South – to the Overberg where she has been handcrafting her very own gin. As always, Juno does things her way and has sourced a secret selection of botanicals of which most are endemic to South Africa, some very hard to find. The blend has just been perfected and Juno is excited to share it with you. Curious? You should be. Some call it a revolution. Juno calls it adventure.
This handcrafted gin is infused with fresh lemon, bay leaves, sweet orange, star aniseed, pepper, juniper berries – the rest Juno is keeping a secret! It can be enjoyed on the rocks, or as Juno would – in a BIG Copa glass with an Indian Tonic and dehydrated orange, rosemary or fresh lemon. Salute!
Juno Wine Company
The Juno Wine Company - based in the town of Paarl in the heart of South Africa’s winelands - was born of a marriage between wine and art. Since the founding of the winery Tertia du Toit’s unique and alluring Cape Maidens labels have attracted great consumer interest and attention. Now the Cape Maidens series are replaced by another tribute to Juno, Roman queen of the gods, divine protectress and symbol of eternal youth with intricate labels echoing Italian antiquity.
Juno celebrates wine, women and the creative pursuits that both have inspired throughout history. She is one part fierce, one part compassion. She wears a goat’s skin to symbolise her combatant force, while her chariot is drawn by peacocks who safeguard her. A salute to the Italian influence on South African food, wine and lifestyle, Juno is reminiscent of the vino of Italia: absolutely ‘magnifico’.Juno wines are produced under the Fairtrade system which is inkeeping with the ethos of the company.

The Western Cape of South Africa is among some of the most beautiful vineyard locations in the world - vivid green pastures tucked between granite and sandstone cliffs, sapphire-blue ocean, and the bright white edifices of 300 year old colonial homesteads. One of the larger geographical units within the South African Wine of Origin classification system, most of the nation’s wines come from this region.
