OUR STORY

our story

Angel Heart Distillery is a uniquely Joburg brand originally created through a powerful fusion of passion and palate! The brainchild of Jacqueline Grobler, supported by her partner Jaco, the business had its beginnings in the garage of our family home. A fascination for the magic of distilling, coupled with a clear intention, gave impetus to the dream and the dynamism of this double act is unstoppable.

We are not interested in simply distilling and selling alcoholic products – we sell bespoke experiences; we pour our hearts and energy into each formulation. Never following a recipe nor a predetermined formulae or process; we compose a gin. Like a symphony we add notes that come together to create something unique and quite magical; a matchless taste sensation.

The alchemical process of transforming one element into another truly is magical to experience and it never gets old, It’s this combination that has resulted in the success of Ginifer and Westcliff with several local and global awards backing the credentials of this spirt.

There is a very old school and real element to everything we make, from the science behind food, to growing and using our own herbs, vegetables and spices. Always striving to create a product of beauty, balance and the unusual. Shaping something beautiful is what makes our hearts race. We love making our clients feel enchanted and wanting more.

We will never just be a company chasing a bottom line. We only release a product when it’s ready and this can mean going back to the drawing board again and again to refine the process. From a Sunday afternoon idea that was born in our kitchen, it took incredible dedication and passion to get to the point we now find ourselves.

The Distilleries core values are Integrity, honesty and delivering quality products with a fun element.
