The Grey Hawk Classic Craft Gin Story

The African Harrier Hawk is a frequent visitor to the wide bright-blue sun-swept sky above the Qualito Craft Distillery. Master of her high, clean and clear domain. Feathering the wind with flawless precision. Hawk-eyed. Missing nothing.
The perfect inspiration to elevate gin to a whole new level.

Harnessing the perfect Lowveld climate and the crystal-clear waters of the Olifants River, our master-craftsmen keep a sharp eye on the distillation process from start to finish of each meticulous stage of every handmade, hand-bottled batch. Grey Hawk Classic Craft Gin begins with carefully selected non-GMO grain and goes through a triple fractional distillation process, which means we have complete control of the quality and character of every drop. Only when we’re satisfied that we have crafted the spirit to be as a pure, clean and crisp as the Phalaborwa sky do we move on to infusing Grey Hawk Classic Craft Gin with traditional juniper berries along with three carefully selected botanicals.

Spread your wings with a craft gin that soars far above expectations. Inhale the classic aroma of juniper, lemon zest and unique herbal notes. On the palate, anticipate bold juniper, sweet floral spice and fresh citrus delivering a dry lemony finish. Our classically crafted gin is as distinctive as the cry of the beautiful raptor that inspired its creation. Grey Hawk Classic Craft Gin pairs with subtle cheeses,
the smokiness of salmon or the sweet saltiness of oysters as perfectly as a
pair of wings.

Grey Hawk Classic Craft Gin.
Taking gin to a higher level.

African Harrier-Hawk* (Polyboroides Typus), Afrikaans: Kaalwangvalk

There are an estimated 1 000 pairs in northeastern South Africa, with most concentrations in the Kruger and Limpopo National Park. It is often seen in the tree canopy or on cliff faces, as it grips on vertical surfaces looking for holes in trees and rock crevices. Its legs bend backwards so that it can maintain an upright balance while clinging to a tree trunk.When excited, its yellow face flushes red.
