African Moments With Musgrave Gin

Musgrave Gin is a hand crafted artisan gin with an authentic story of an African explorer heritage. Thats exactly the reason why we decided to take a bottle with on our epic 10 day romantic safari.

Gin and tonic and hot African days out in the bush go hand in hand according to me. There is nothing better than watching the sun set with a G&T and some animals out in the distance. It gives you a feeling of romance and a bygone era and thats exactly the type of emotions Musgrave wants to evoke.

Musgrave produces two gin’s, the original and the utterly gorgeous pink gin! For this trip we chose the original so Mike didn’t feel left out. For my next girly getaway I will definitely be getting the pink one though! Pretty pink G&T’s all around right!? Not only did the gorgeous bottle fit right in with our surroundings, the spicy taste also added to our adventure!

It celebrates indigenous botanicals found all over Africa, like African ginger and cardamom which are all part of the rich
African Spice Route.

The Musgrave Gin Story

“Maurice Boon Musgrave, grandfather of founder Simone Musgrave, left Plymouth in 1949 bound for Africa to start
a new life exploring and discovering the people and land of Africa. Three months on a ship with a small baby, a
measles outbreak and many a day of seasickness and the adventure that would change the shape of his family had
begun. From then onward an African family would take on the adventure Maurice had started. The spirit of
endeavor, adventure and courage lives on in granddaughter, Simone, guardian of Maurice’s passion for the unusual.”
I am so glad that we got to make Musgrave gin part of our adventure as well!
