Primitiv Vodka is not just another vodka; it's authentic, sophisticated and lovingly handcrafted from organic Spelt grown in the high Cedarberg.

Savingnac Potstill Brandy is South Africa's finest spirit, rare and rich, and completely natural.

Jorgensen’s Gin is a journey through extraoprdinary African aromatic botanicals. South African grown Juniper and peppery Grains of Paradise from Wild West Africa.

Field of Dreams is South Africa's handrafted organic ABSINTHE. Distilled in the traditional French way it is a Labour of Love.

Handpicked hand zested natural macerated lemons, their gorgeous organic oils and fragrant lemon colour, is what makes our Naked Lemon Limoncello.

Jorgensen's Distillery now produces our own African Bitters labeled Afrodite.

The Incidental Tourist is where Dawn shares, writes and shows photographs from her much loved travels.

Africa Awaits Tours and Safaris is a tour operating company specialising in exclusive self-drive itineraries, guided tours and fly-in safaris within Southern Africa.

Jorgensen's Distillery Gin - SA's first Premium Gin!

At Jorgensen's Distillery The Still Man Roger Jorgensen lovingly handcrafts a range of super premium spirits for your enjoyment.  We invite you to visit us and learn more about our range of products - or simply work your way through the pages and links of this site.

We are open anytime, but by appointment please, which does not mean that we don't want you to visit, but does mean that as Craft Distillers we live and work at Versailles, and do all distribution and marketing ourselves, so aren't always here. Besides, a call to announce your interest gives us an opportunity to dust the cat hair off the table ....

Jorgensen's Distillery announces our premium spirits SAVINGNAC Potstill Brandy, PRIMITIV Vodka, FIELD OF DREAMS Absinthe, Jorgensen's Gin, Naked Lemon Limoncello and Naked Lime Liqueur, as well as some home brewed wine. Other involvements include Dawn's travel blog The Incidental Tourist and the bespoke tour operating business that has featured so much in our lives over the past 12 years - Africa Awaits Tours and Safaris.

The Jorgensen family has seven members Roger, Dawn and young blood Jess Lexi Lemor Joel and Eden. We look forward to hosting you. Our Spirited family, as below.
