Sneak peak: Meet our lovely December cover girl, Tanya Cruse

Petite, soft-spoken and ever-so-sweet, Tanya is nevertheless a powerhouse. Dynamic and determined, she runs her Gin & Co. craft brewery and Dollie Gin craft label as smoothly as a delicious ice-cold rooibos infused gin goes down on a hot summers day.

Tanya is also mom to two gorgeous little boys, wife to Hylton, and the creator of the perfect South African-style martini, with an irresistible added hint of Lowveld. Part of her repertoire includes gin jam – yes, you read that correctly – gin jam, imagine that on a hot-buttered piece of toast!!

Take it from us, a visit to the delightful Gin & Co. is a must – try the gin tasting with Melusi, as he explains the releasing of the serpent and explores the different avenues of mixers, garnishes and flavoured gins.

It truly is the most sublime way of spending a lazy afternoon. We catch up with Tanya to sample these delights and find out a bit more about her whirlwind life.

Gin & Co. is open every day from 10 am to 5 pm, excepting Fridays (open until 6 pm); Saturdays (open until 4 pm) and Sundays (open until 2 pm.)

Where: Casterbridge Centre; White River; Mpumalanga
