AA BADENHORST | AA Badenhorst Family Wines are grown, made and matured on Kalmoesfontein farm from 28ha of old bush vines in the Swartland appellation of South Africa. The property is owned by cousins Hein and Adi Badenhorst. On Kalmoesfontein it is back to basics, using traditional winemaking equipment and an old cement kuipe. “We make wines with immense character. We’re using what we can afford. We are making the best wines we can.”

CAPERITIF | By the early 21st century, Caperitif had become a ghost ingredient in classic cocktail recipes. What was this mysterious ‘Cape Aperitif’ that was referenced in that classic cocktail bible from the late 1800’s, the Savoy Cocktail Book?

This question asked by an adventurous Danish mixologist lead to a meeting with a maverick South African winemaker and the rebirth of South Africa’s once-famous vermouth. Caperitif is handcrafted by infusing Chenin Blanc with the flavours and aromas of some 35 natural botanicals, many of which are unique to the insane biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Caperitif is made from wine fortified by spirits, gently sweetened with the sugars of the grape, bittered by cinchona bark and flavoured with a selection of some 35 natural botanicals, including Fynbos, Kalmoes and Naartjie.
