Wild Cucumber Gin


This stunning fruit, that grows wild in the Bushveld, delivers wonderful fresh cucumber and lime early in the ripening cycle. As its colours change from speckled green to a distinctive swirling orange, vibrant but subtle flavours of green melon and kiwi emerge.

Floral depth is provided by Buddleja salvifolia the Bushveld’s prolifically flowering ‘Butterfly Bush’, so-named because of the masses of butterflies it attracts in early summer.

The Wild Cucumber, or African Horned Melon, looks alien-like, and even made an appearance on Star Trek as “Golana melon” from the planet of Golana.
Luckily, we found a better use for the African fruit in our Wild Cucumber Flowstone Gin. This creates a smooth, fresh and clean drink for you to enjoy.
