We are all about family here and would love for you to join our family of Legendary Tales!

LEGENDARY TALES

We at Hudson Crafts set ourselves apart, by sharing unique storytelling of sacred tales that explain the world and man’s experience.

Each bottle will serve as a collectible collection of crafted storytelling ex- pressed through a drawn illustration, that is inspired by each family member.

Our Legendary tales are myths of warriors, who are our semi-divine human heroes, with epic adventures that serve a more profound purpose.

Our myths take on conservation issues we are facing in human life today, to somehow tell or teach us how to interact with our earth, and to drink respon- sibly as a good man or woman.

DISTILLING

Hudson Crafts gin collection is crafted and distilled near the heart of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. Harnessing only the finest and locally sourced botanicals from South Africa. These natural botanical ingredients steep, or macerate, in the neutral spirit, releasing their flavours before being distilled again, resulting in a fusion that ends with a smooth yet intricate taste.

100% natural ingredients.
No preservatives or artificial flavors are added.
Made with natural flavoring botanicals to a neutral grain spirit of agricultural origin.

Hudson Crafts gin base botanical sets

The rest are our secret!

Juniper berries

Are technically fleshy cones, more closely related to a pine cone than a blueberry. These are picked and then crushed before being blended, releasing their fresh, citrusy essences.

Cardamon

Cardamon and juniper berries work hand in hand; these two zesty flavors are mellowed when brought together, creating a smoother and sweeter gin.

Coriander

An essential botanical to our gins because of its spiced nut essence that imparts the spirit with more body.

Black pepper

A simple ingredient that imbues the gin with a deceptively elaborate tinge. Oftentimes black pepper’s create a more nuanced flavor profile.

Lemon peel

Lemon may seem like a one-note ingredient, but It brightens the infusion, creating a more delicate and docile spirit by toning down the juniper.

Orange

Orange is the opposite botanical to lemon, with sweetness and richness a counterpoint to freshness and tart notes due to their dried peel containing the essential oils that provide flavour.
