Not a lot of gin producers can claim to be the first and original London Dry Gin and host South Africa’s FIRST Virtual Happy Hour, but Greenall’s Gin is the exception to this.

The world changed overnight on Monday 23 March when President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a 21 day nationwide lockdown. 

No pubs, no restaurants, no beaches, no gym, no parties, no braais.

But this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your time at home so why not enjoy it with Greenall’s Gin? The ability to connect with loved ones is vitally important to our mental and emotional health. Greenall’s Gin understands this, now more than ever. 

On Friday 27 March, Day 1 of Lockdown, Greenall’s Gin and ZAlebs will bring the party to the people between 6 - 7pm. Kicking off LIVE on ZAlebs Facebook at 6pm sharp.

Greenall’s Original London Dry Gin is a classic London Dry gin with rich juniper notes, balanced with mature citrus and spice. The gin is distilled in a traditional copper pot still with eight botanicals added by hand which include juniper, coriander and angelica.

Signature serve:
Greenall’s Original London Dry Gin is best served as an original G&T, with premium tonic water and garnished with two wedges of lime.


A pioneer in flavoured gin, Greenall’s launched Wild Berry Pink Gin in 2014. The gin is made by distilling raspberries and blackberries with more traditional Greenall’s Gin botanicals. Greenall’s Wild Berry Pink Gin contains zero added sugar, unlike some leading flavoured gin brands which contain up to 90g of sugar per litre.

Signature serve:
Greenall’s Wild Berry Pink Gin is best enjoyed with premium tonic water and a raspberry garnish.
