Iconic African Gin
Handcrafted with Zambian Passion and Swiss Precision
After travelling through Eastern and Southern Africa, Nathaly and Gue Wagner chose Zambia as their home, drawn to the country by its beauty and friendliness. At Nagwaza Farm, they found friends and a new place to call home. Here, the journey to produce a world-class artisanal gin started and Iconic African Gin was born.
Africa’s natural environment gave them access to its pantry of handpicked roots, herbs, and berries to create this unique gin, handcrafted in the smallest batches. This unique gin is distilled on the bases of molasses. It contains the natural flavour of 20 different handpicked botanicals, 17 of which are collected from the African continent, with 14 coming from Zambia, making the production a genuinely Iconic African Gin.
The bottles are adorned with a beautiful piece of art painted by the Zambian artist Nukwase Tembo. A beautiful woman graces every bottle of Iconic African Gin. Her ‘forest hair’ symbolises the source of the botanicals used in the gin. Her clothes, make-up and leaves are painted using Zambia’s national colours. If you look closely at her eyes, you will see that one is done using the colours of Zambia, and the other is done using the colours of Switzerland, the gin’s creators’ original home. Symbolising the company motto “Handcrafted with Zambian Passion and Swiss Precision”.
Whether you are exploring the African bush or sightseeing and shopping in Lusaka. A gin and tonic is the perfect sundowner, and there’s no better gin to use than one handcrafted in Zambia, infused with the very flavour and essence of the country.
How to drink the Iconic African Gin
Plain or make a gin and tonic
Try to taste it just plain as a sipping gin with an ice cube. You might be surprised. If you prefer a G&T, mix identical amounts of gin and tonic, and add one ice cube. Don’t add garnish; we know it’s fashionable but not necessary with an artisan gin.
