Cheers to the weekend!


Tonight we’re kicking off the weekend alcohol-free, with a Mahala Botanical cocktail.

Yup, you heard right! We’re toasting to a busy weekend ahead in the best kind of way … 50mls of Mahala Botanical’s exciting new Amber offering over ice, with a generous dose of ginger ale, and garnished with lemon zest and rosemary. And we’ll be enjoying that, in the kitchen, while knocking up a spicy seafood paella.

Delicately balancing a clever combination of chillies, smoke, oak and nine hand-sourced botanicals, Mahala Botanical Amber is dark alcohol-free spirit, crafted (it’s uniquely, triple-distillated) in Cape Town by one of the world’s leading female master distillers, Danielle Schoeman, who oversees the entire production process, ensuring the highest possible standards right from the farm to the glass.

Mahala – meaning “free” in Zulu – also delivers appeal for today’s conscious consumer, being free from sugar, gluten, and artificial flavours or colourings, in addition to alcohol.

Pop open the bottle and you’re hit with fragrant smoke, spices and oak, with subtle sweet floral notes of Honey Bush. On first sip, it’s all warm spices with chilli and smoke, followed by a long, warm and spicy finish.

Best appealing to those who prefer bolder, darker drinks, Mahala Botanical Amber is available for R299 from
