Custom spirits distillation and product development

The Johannesburg Distilling Company offers two distinct services: white labelling and bespoke (tailor-made) products.

White labelling takes an existing recipe and puts it into your brand. Custom distilling/ Bespoke / Tailor-made is where we create a unique recipe / formulation for you.

Each of these methods use an artisanal process, highest quality ingredients, sustainable methods and passion.




White labelling involves repackaging our premium craft gin or vodka into customised packaging, tailored to the specific requirements of our clients. This option is ideal for businesses or individuals looking to add their own branding to a high-quality spirit.

Our team will closely collaborate with clients to develop custom packaging that represents their brand. From production to distribution, we take care of every aspect of the process.

Lead times - 2-4 weeks

Minimum order quantities - 50

Pricing - Starting at R315 per bottle ex VAT

Discounts - Available on repeating orders and volumes over 500



For those seeking a truly unique product, our bespoke service is the perfect choice. This comprehensive service involves creating a custom recipe, designing the packaging, obtaining certificates of compliance, manufacturing and delivering the product.

Our team of experts works closely with clients to develop a one-of-a-kind spirit that aligns with their vision. From selecting botanicals to designing labels, every element can be tailored to their specifications.
