About Battlefield Distillery

Battlefield Distillery is a craft distillery that produces small batch hand crafted Whisky, Rum, Vodka, Moonshine and Cream Liqueur. The distillery is situated on the historic battlefield route in the Northern Cape running from Oranjerivierstasie to Kimberley where 4 important battles took place during the early stages of the Anglo-Boer War.

The second battle of the Anglo-Boer War took place on the distillery farm in November 1899. During this Battle of Graspan or Roodelaagte the well known Major Plumbe was fatally wounded, he was especially known for his pet Jack Russel dog, Dickie, that followed him everywhere in battle and stayed for 6 hours with his body after being shot.

Battlefield Distilleries het ontstaan weens ons liefde vir die geskiedenis en veral die Anglo Boere oorlog weens die groot rol wat dit in die vorming van die moderne Afrikaner en breër Suid Afrikaanse gemeenskap gespeel het. Deur die skep van kwaliteit produkte wil ons die Boere Oorlog weer lewendig maak vir die verbruikers wat die geskiedenis en die Boere Oorlog geniet. Nou kan die geskiedenis geproe word en kan die veldslae en die ontberinge van die Boere herleef word rondom ‘n kamp vuur.

All their products are produced from scratch starting with whole maize grains and open fires on which the starches are converted to fermentable sugars. This traditional method we use allows for a real authentic flavour and taste in their products.

Their Whisky and Rums are aged in roasted French oak barrels for at least three years after it was slow filtered through local “Suidwesdoring” wooded charcoal in order for a deep mellow smooth taste experience.

They use local underground water that combined with the open wood fires and charcoal filtering results in a truly unique taste profile and product specific to this harsh region. No additives such as flavours and colourants are added to their distilled products offering you a clean and neat product.
