World's First Cascara Gin
D’Urban Scarlet Gin, made by Distillery 031, is the world’s first gin made with cascara (coffee cherries). Cascara is the red, fleshy covering around the coffee bean. Normally coffee cherries are considered a by-product of the coffee-making process and are discarded as waste. But we have found an eco-friendly way to add a unique flavour to our gin. The cascara adds subtle berry notes without becoming overpowering. This exciting gin is hand crafted in small batches using locally-sourced cascara from Beaver Creek Coffee Estate on the KwaZulu-Natal coast of South Africa.
