Indigenous and fynbos flora is a main feature of all Inverroche gins, liqueurs and spiced rums and has been used for centuries by the Khoi and San people as medicinal and edible plants.
The practice of using ‘veld food’, herbs, flowers, fruit, berries, bark and seeds to feed, heal, spice up a meal or invigorate the body or mind was also adopted by the early settlers and continues today.
Aloe vera for example continues to be harvested sustainably from the wild as it has been for centuries. Aloe tappers collect the bitter aloe and harvest the outer leaves in the veld without damaging the plant.
