Our Story

Our Origins

South Africa

Created in 2017 by husband-and-wife entrepreneurs, Craig Hutchison and Maria Sehlstrom – Ceder’s joined Pernod Ricard in January 2021.

Ceder’s recipe has been developed by distilling both classic gin botanicals like juniper with more exotic botanicals like rooibos and buchu, sourced from the Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape in South Africa – where Ceder’s gets its name.

Our Production Process
A Step by Step Process
Step 1
CURATING

The Ceder’s range is made using 15 botanicals, carefully selected for their specific flavors. Juniper and Coriander for instance, are typically found in gins and make the perfect base for the 4 distinct flavour profiles of the Ceder’s range.

Step 2
EXTRACTING

Each of the botanicals are then individually distilled into a concentrate to capture each unique flavourBuchu and Rooibos are South African plants found in the Cederberg Mountains, in order to preserve their distinctly wild flavours, our distillers work on very small batches, ensuring great flavour.

Step 3
BLENDING

These meticulously harvested and distilled flavours are then blended together to create the 4 distinct flavour profiles of the range.

Classic, Crisp, Rose and Wild are 4 successful combinations of some of the 15 Ceder’s botanicals and they each have a very distinct personality whilst sharing 4 common elements:

0% ALCOHOL
0 SUGAR
0 CALORIES

And full of flavour!
