More About Us
Red Stone Craft
Red Stone Craft has been named after the beautiful Rooiberge (or Red Mountains) which surround our village of Clarens, where we are based. And we think that’s fitting since their fertile soils provide us with all the delicious fruits we need for our craft products!
Red Stone Craft was born from a passion that the brewer of Clarens Brewery, Stephan Meyer, has for distilling and fermenting products from fruits. We started out with our cider range and quickly added gin, liqueurs, and juices to the range. All our products are hand crafted right here in Clarens, with fruits from the region (OK – we don’t have pineapples in the Free State but our Durban friends do and send us juice).
When you want the enjoyment of a refreshing G&T without the alcohol, our alcohol free, sparkling G&T range offers 3 delicious, refreshing options that are alcohol free without any compromise on taste. Serve these are you would their alcoholic cousins, with ice and a garnish of choice.
Our gin is an authentic Orchard to Bottle gin. We crush apples from surrounding farms, ferment into cider, and then double distil the cider to produce Apple Schnapps of a superior quality. This is then infused with a unique selection of herbs and botanicals, juniper being the base. This rich, smooth, flavoured infusion is once again distilled in our beautiful, specially designed Gin still where we collect only the highest quality, most balanced runnings.
Sparkling Fruit Juice
Our delicious sparkling juice range is 100% from apples in the region which we juice ourselves on the same press that we use for making cider. We blend the apple juice with juice from the finest local cherries, with our granadillas and pineapples sourced from across SA.
Available in 330ml bottles or 300ml cans.
