Buy a bottle of Elephant Gin to support the Elephants
Inspired by the traditional sundowner experience after a day out in the African bush, award-winning Elephant Gin is a handcrafted gin made from rare African botanicals combined with fresh apples creating a unique taste. Elephant Gin donates 15% of their profits to three partner charities working to protect the endangered African Elephant; to date they have donated 500,000 euros to these foundations to support the preservation of these beautiful animals.
Elephant Gin supports The Sheldrick Trust who rescue, care for and protect orphaned baby elephants in a sanctuary near Nairobi, until they are ready to be reintroduced to the wild. The Elephant Gin miniature bottles have the names of 22 elephants who have been fostered by Elephant Gin and successfully released into the wild. Elephant Gin also contributes to Big Life Foundation’s Ranger Club, which funds a brave team of rangers who work tirelessly to protect elephants from poachers in Kenya’s vast wilderness. Furthermore, in partnership with the Space for Elephants Foundation, Elephant Gin have co-founded an education centre called the Wildlife Spirit, to share information an educate the next generation of locals as well as tourists to the area. The centre also focuses on supporting local employment through recycling initiatives and showcasing local art and culture.
Each batch of Elephant Gin is named after a special elephant and the names are hand-written on the label by a calligrapher.
While its story started in South Africa, Elephant Gin is handmade in Germany with a focus on the highest quality production standards. The ingredients and botanicals are gathered from all over the world and include African Wormwood, Devil’s Claw and Lion’s Tail from South Africa, Mountain Pine from Austria, Ginger from China, Orange Peel from Spain, Pimento from Mexico, Cassia Bark from Indonesia and Baobab from Malawi.
Sustainability and social responsibility
Every part of the Elephant Gin journey is assessed to ensure that the gin they produce is as environmentally friendly as possible. This means that waste reduction, innovative recycling initiatives, natural and recyclable packaging, a policy of no single-use plastic and continually looking at what else can be done to make processes greener.
For the production of marketing materials, they take a similar approach as we try to source recycled paper or that made out of elephant dung for our brochures and flyers.
In addition they form partnerships to further education, provide work in wildlife conservation and work with likeminded companies and communities.
