Cape Fynbos Gin

Capr Fynbos Gin visual stories.

2 sets were created per landscape around 2 cocktails made with Cape Fynbos Gin, to make 8 visual stories around the gin, fynbos and the boundless botanicals found inside the ginned in fynbos.

A lovely brand to work with, and very respectful of not ‘over branding’ and letting us do our work. Its one fo the few brands I’ve worked with where the bottle hasn’t offended me.

Pomegranate and wild rosemary with red luekodendron protea flames.

The Ice Queen shot – lemon granita gin fizz with misty mountains and snow (see video below)

One of our favourite shots, in full sun with harsh shadows, but pink glass and everlastings with numnum ice just makes this such a thirsty shot.

Lime sorbet with buchu ice and apple

Gin and buchu cordial with sparkling water in the ‘wild fynbos garden’

G&T with sugar-free tonic. Always. Slice of lemon and the delicacy of the fynbos picked by hand makes me adore this picture.

Dark and dangerous Negroni with orange peel and Leo Hicks barman paddle.

Visual stories curated by myself and Hein, I build the sets and source and he takes the photographs.
