We often get asked if we export our gins. Although export is a very tiny part of what we do, we do send our gin to several countries around the world. Up until 2020 we have exported our “heritage” label collection … just while the rebrand settled in here, but we have just shipped the new label collection to Switzerland and Taiwan.
We’re pleased to say that Hope is available in several European countries, as well as in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Our Taiwanese importer is Dr. Feng-Wei Huang, otherwise known as Fred, who specialises in South African products, including gins. You can get in touch with him via his website.
Hope is also available in several other Southern African countries thanks to the team at Under the Influence – who also stock many of the safari lodges and bars and restaurants around Southern and Eastern Africa. Please do get in touch with them if you’re keen to stock our gins or vodka. Additionally, Fine Brands services the market in Botswana, and you can get in touch with them through their website.
In Germany our Distributor is Kerstin Beckmann of Intaba-Weine. If you’re looking to get your hands on our gins in Germany, please get in touch with her. For details, please visit her website.
Hope is also available in Switzerland, both through Cape Wine Selection which is run by Andy Zimmerman – for details look at his website – as well as through Cape Gin who stock not only our gins, but also our vodka.
In Hong Kong, our gins are available through Chilled Wine – you can contact them or buy through their website.
When you’re once again allowed to fly in to visit South Africa, look out for Hope Gin on your way out at Big Five Duty Free at Cape Town International and OR Thambo in Johannesburg.
