For our first event for the year we are visiting Jorgensen’s Distillery in Wellington.
Dawn and Roger Jorgensen hand make a range of high quality spirits with love and passion, including brandy, vodka, limoncello and absinthe. By sourcing the finest quality raw materials, and using herbs that they grow in their own garden, they ensure a product that is far superior to what we buy in the shops. We will be given a tour of the distillery with an explanation of the process involved in creating the various spirits as well as a presentation of the herbs that are used.
We will finish our visit with a tasting of their spirits on the back porch of their home, overlooking the vineyards. Their products will also be available for purchase.
We can only accommodate 20 people at this event, with bookings on a first-come basis and limited to one guest per member. **UPDATE: 10/02/2011 there are only 2 spaces left**
Those who are keen are welcome to join us for lunch afterwards at the Stone Kitchen at Dunstone Estate nearby. Their casual café menu showcases produce from the Wellington valley. Please book your own table on 021-864-2451.
Other attractions in the area include the beautiful gardens at Klein Optenhorst, and wine tasting at Nabygelegen.
