    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.

    Skeptic Distillery

    “I always thought most liquor tasted harsh, needing mixers or chasers to drink. I wanted fresher tasting and smoother spirits. As a homebrewer and craft beer lover, I saw that cold distillation would allow me to take the huge variety and creativity of craft beer into the whiskey and gin world, and create entirely new, fresh tasting spirits.” - Karl Loepke, President
