Lorna Scott is the owner of Inverroche Distillery, the maker of Fynbos flavoured gin.

Lorna Scott’s Inverroche produces three distinctively different styles of gin – Classic, Verdant and Amber.

According to legend, 11th century Italian monks invented gin for medicinal purposes.

Lorna Scott’s distillery is built from local limestone and surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and Fynbos.

Lorna Scott’s distillery’s unique floral shaped logo symbolises the interaction between the water and rocks that supports the flora of the region.

We export to 13 countries and have been doubling our sales every six months, all through word-of-mouth! The story behind the distillery is driving the whole thing. You take a bottle home and it becomes a conversation piece.
