With its heritage rooted in the African and Latin lands, Obrigado Gin is an award winning and internationally renowned premium chardonnay gin that was influenced by the music, travel, food, and storytelling of African and Latin ancestry. The Obrigado brand and experiential platform were introduced in South Africa in 2014 and have now expanded to Mozambique, Brazil and Argentina. The brand and experiential platform are a natural extension of Obrigado experience.
It is a genius brainchild of three Soweto-born entrepreneurs, Tebogo Moalusi, Kenny “DJ Kenzhero” Nzama and Muziwethu “Tha_Muzik” Mtshali, and then later were joined by Unathi Moalusi.
The fascination behind it? Founded by South African entrepreneurs, Obrigado Gin is crafted by Rolf Zeitvogel, an accomplished Master Distiller who resides in Germany and was 3rd generation. It has a complex and fresh aroma that is reminiscent of the alchemy and distinctiveness of Africa. Despite its simplicity, this premium gin has a citrus inspired flavour that will tantalize your taste buds.
Distilled in Creation Wine chardonnay barrels, the smooth gin picks up the kind and chardonnay taste notes from the wood, making it a one of a kind Chardonnay Gin. It brings the best of both worlds, a premium white wine and an exceptional gin. In addition, it has a distinctive wood aroma that lend this drink its unique character.
The ritual is to enjoy Obrigado when celebrating life. In a moment of reflection, you can drink this beautiful gin, each and every time, as a way to acknowledge your gratitude and express thanks. In addition to producing and distributing liquor, Obrigado Gin Company is a 100% Black Owned company.
