Inspired by Cape Town’s rich cultural diversity, culinary history and bountiful indigenous flora, the Abstinence Cape Spice draws its inspiration from indigenous African dishes, as well as our Dutch, Indian and Portuguese spice history.
For the love of spice and all things nice! Our Abstinence Cape Spice is a complex blend of allspice, cassia bark and clove, lifted by floral cardamom and citrus notes.
Abstinence: Restore Balance. Inspired by the biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom, Abstinence is a range of sophisticated, layered, complex non-alcoholic spirits, made using an artisanal single batch distillation process.
The Distilling Process: A non-alcoholic spirit? Yes. The first big myth is that distillation produces alcohol. It does not: Fermentation produces alcohol. Distillation is simply a method of extraction—a process by which you can capture flavour. Our distiller is the multi-talented and serially creative James. International electronic DJ-turned full time distiller, James has always had a fascination with the alchemy inherent in the creation of finely crafted, quality products.
An aromatic, complex marriage of floral notes and warm spice.
