This year Inverroche has introduced its 3rd and final addition to the Creative Collection Series, Inverroche Coco Capensis. ‘Capensis’ refers to that which originates from, or which belongs to, the Cape. It is the Latin name for the region, known as the Cape, at the Southern tip of Africa. Lorna Scott, CEO and Founder of the brand, has always believed in pushing the boundaries with local flora and interesting botanicals, and for the first time in the brands existence, she has created a Gin where the consumer can explore the innovation of colour by adding a tasteless all natural rose malva pinking essence into the outer box, which will transform the clear liquid into a beautiful and elegant pink colour.
The Coco Capensis Gin liquid is an elegant, smooth & well-balanced, dry gin with a nuanced floral and fruit profile. It is a combination of various fynbos botanicals resulting in a variant which compliments the juniper and lends itself to a Gin which is perfect for mixability. The lead flavours are Cape May and Rose Pelargonium, which is held together with very subtle characteristics of ruby chocolate. The gin is soft and tart on the nose, while the finish is well rounded and delicate. Lorna’s recommended serve, is with premium Indian tonic over ice, garnished with rose petals, a sprig of orange buchu, pomegranate seeds and an almond macaroon or a strawberry tuile on the side creating a memorable summer drinking experience.
It is the journey of storytelling, unique ingredients and a celebration of our heritage which has inspired the launch of the Coco Capensis Creative Collection No.3 which speaks to the home of Inverroche based in Still Bay, of the Western Cape.
This beautiful, limited edition creation invites Inverroche’s consumers to share in the magic of alchemy with only 13 200 bottle available in South Africa which would make for the perfect Christmas gift or festive season celebration Gin.
Fill your life with creativity with pinking moments with the Coco Capensis Creative Collection No.3!

Inverroche was founded by Lorna Scott in December 2011 in the southern Cape coastal village of Still Bay, at the tip of the African continent, where it has gone from a small home industry to the largest South African artisanal Gin brand in just 10 short years. The portfolio includes a core range of three variants of gin, two limited edition gins, two rums and three liqueurs and is already available in 30 countries on 4 continents. What differentiates the brand is its use of rare, indigenous flora, known as “Fynbos” from the Western Cape, which grows nowhere else on the planet. “Fynbos” has long been used by indigenous people for medicinal and culinary purposes but is now under threat due to agricultural development and invasive alien plants. Lorna felt that one way of preserving this unique biome would be to find a sustainable, commercial use for it and to create a global brand which would tell the story of these historically significant plants which contributed to the survival and emergence of modern humans.
