    Maduro in Spanish means “mature.” In agave production, it refers to spirits that have been left to age, or mature, in glass bottles or carboys before release to the public (glass-rested spirits). High proof spirits, contrary to popular understanding, do age and change in bottle. Rare, limited and unique—click to view what maduro items we have in stock.

    Gin & Elephants

    Gin and Elephants. As combinations go, it’s not an obvious one. But Elephant Gin is more than just the obvious choice.

    The founders were inspired to create Elephant Gin following their own adventures in Africa. With a vision to conserve the wildlife they feel so passionately for, they decided to launch a product that would help conservation trusts.

    With every full size bottle sold, Elephant Gin contributes 15% of profits to elephant conservation charities including Big Life Foundation, while with each miniature bottle sold, 15% of profits is donated to Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. All of these organizations are devoted to the conservation of the African elephant. Up to date, Elephant Gin has contributed over EUR 500,000 to its partner foundations through the sales of its bottles as well as fundraising events.
