Geometric Gin reflects the Cape’s unique chrono-geographic situation, defining a post-modern perspective of Cape Dry Gin. Unapologetically South African this gin is bold with juniper and coriander, subtle Cape Malay style cinnamon, cardamom and clove lined with earthy indigenous buchu and Cape snowbush.

Their name is founded by the balance and structure one finds in nature. Constantly inspired by their surroundings, Geometric Drinks seeks to harness all that the Cape has to offer, producing their own expression of botanical and grape-based drinks.

Geometric Drinks is inspired by the Fynbos Floral Kingdom and the Cape’s botanical and spice-infused history, alchemy and production are run by Jean-Baptiste Cristini (Tista).

Distilling had been a hobby for several years, prompted by home-brewing in Champagne with his friends and the immersion into experimentation and mixology, with his first love being the classic Negroni. On arrival back in the Cape in 2013, Tista decided to distil his own gin using the locally sourced botanicals. As this hobby grew, so did the desire to produce everything from scratch, even the components of the Negroni.

Geomotric Drinks’ passion for nature is reflected in their support of the Geometric Tortoise, a local inhabitant of the rehabilitated land where we first started harvesting wild botanicals for Geometric Gin and Symmetry Tonics.
