Hope on Hopkins is one of Cape Town’s most exciting independent distilleries. Founded by husband-and-wife team Leigh Lisk and Lucy Beard, it produces a range of flavourful gins that bring new dimensions to an old favourite.

The duo gave us a tour of their Salt River bar and distillery, which also features in our alternative guide to Cape Town. ‘For such a young scene, people are really starting to experiment and learn how versatile gin can be,’ says Lucy. ‘They’re also looking for local South African botanicals and that’s really putting Cape Town on the map.’
