At Still 33 we produce premium spirits for people to share in celebration. Our spirits are hand crafted at our distillery in Kyalami, Johannesburg.
Still 33 was named in the spirit of challenging the establishment. 1933 marked the end of prohibition. A period which made spirits such as gin, moonshine and rum popular for their use in cocktails as people passively fought the great social experiment which oppressed their freedom to celebrate with alcoholic beverages. Today, in South Africa, craft distillers embrace this spirit of challenging the established spirits market which is tightly controlled by a few large distillers. We do this through innovation and creativity in methods and flavours.
The number 33 holds further meaning for our distillery as it is the distiller’s racing number on the local historic tour and the number of the company’s vintage Model A Ford. The Model A Ford was the most prevalent rum runners’ vehicle of choice during and after the prohibition era. Lastly, 33 is also the number of our first still.
