Introducing our, proudly South African produced, award winning, London Dry Gin style gins.
Using only fresh ingredients SMITHS™ dry craft gins are produced and distributed from Johannesburg, South Africa. Each variant is specifically created for the different gin types found in a gin-tonic pairing wheel.
This was done to ensure that all types of gin-drinkers would be satisfied with one or more varieties of the SMITHS™ range. The ingredients are steeped, boiled and then distilled resulting in the fresh and vibrant gins they all are.

South African gin drinkers can now enjoy their favourite tipple while also doing their bit to educate and grow the hospitality sector.
5% of annual profits from every bottle of SMITHS™ South African Dry Craft Gin sold go towards up-skilling deserving individuals by providing hospitality industry bursaries for short courses. This is an excellent social project opening many doors for talented individuals who would otherwise not have the means to further their knowledge, affording them the chance to become true ‘smiths’ of their trade. South Africa is home to great talent in the hospitality industry and SMITHS™ Gin is proud to be a part of nurturing that skill.
The innovative idea is the brainchild of Rachel Smith, founder of SMITHS™ Gin. Rachel has been working in the hospitality and alcohol industry for the last seven years – managing some of the biggest global high-end luxury spirits brands – and so the next natural step was for her to create her own spirits, of which SMITHS™ Gin is the first.

Bright & fresh - a partnership with A Love Supreme
To stand out and be different we partnered with the team from A Love Supreme who designed the beautiful, bright and unique designs of each variant of our SMITHS™ dry craft gins. We use the simple magnification effect of the gin to give the impression that the pattern fills the bottle entirely thus reducing packaging. As you enjoy our gin the pattern reduces and is a reminder you'll be needing to restock soon!
