Cape Town-based distillery Pienaar and Son will be launching a new Drought Edition Gin for each of its classic spirits, which drastically reduces the amount of water used in the making of each product. At present, the gin spirits come off the still at about 80% ABV and are diluted to 43% ABV. Since about 200 litres of water is required per batch to dilute the gin, the all-new Drought Edition Gin will simply be bottled at 80% ABV, helping to conserve a significant amount of water.
As most consumers will be combining the gin with tonic water, the product offers a simple solution for everyone wishing to do their part to reduce water wastage. In a matter of months, Cape Town, South Africa is set to face "Day Zero," where it will run out of water, which inspired the concept.
