Inverroche distillery, a gin driven by the hunger of discovery, a legacy pioneering gin ready to expose the creative expressions that our country has to offer. After years of producing the finest local gin, Inverroche has created an award-winning bartending competition, which sees the annual champion graduate develop and create their own gin under the guidance, Michael Scott MD of Inverroche Distillery. Celebrating the creative spark that bartenders use to tell their origin stories, the annual Inverroche bartending competition is awarded through a creative competition and is an expression of their passion for the craft of bartending.

The coveted title “Champion Bartender” was awarded to industry legend, Travis Kuhn, where he has hand crafted a limited-edition, first of its kind Inverroche Pioneers Collection gin. “Being number one is very important to me and as the first bartender to be awarded with creating the very first Pioneering Collection, I am honoured to be given this opportunity and grateful to the Inverroche team for revealing the true essence of a tastemaker”, says Travis Kuhn.

To unveil the Pioneers Collection gin, Inverroche will be hosting signature tasting and GIN experiences in in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg during this coming month leading up to World G&T Day launching with Travis Kuhn at Gorgeous George on the 12th October.

Celebrating local pioneers is the forefront of the brands development and with a fast-growing global artisanal and craft Gin industry, Inverroche has distinguished itself as a pioneering gin, with remarkable quality and flavour, for consumers who are inclined to the finer things in life.
