A STORM IS BREWING

The Southern Ocean; a vast expanse of blue-black water heaving and groaning with forty foot waves and tempestuous winds that could blow the beard right off a man. It takes some kind of crazy to visit this place and certifiable madness to call it ‘home’.

SALVATION ON THE ROCKS

When 17th century Dutch mariners rounded the Cape straight into the teeth of the great Southern Ocean, they considered themselves unlucky not to have been dashed upon the rocks of Cape Point. But, real excitement for an explorer is the thrill of not knowing what you’re going to find around the next bend.

A MIGHTY WANDERER

As these adventurers, cowering and clinging to the masts, looked to the heavens and searched for their absent Gods, there appeared a mighty wandering bird effortlessly gliding on the winds of the white squall without a worry in the world; they called it Mallemok – The Mad Gull.

A SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE

Mallemok Vodka, like its namesake, is instilled with a spirit of effortless independence and owes its provenance and indeed its unique flavour to the wild cold winds of the great Southern Ocean that blow South-East across the world famous grape growing vineyards of the Cape Peninsula.

CAPE GRAPES

The Cape is revered for its wines, with Chenin Blanc in particular thriving in the Swartland Valley where our grapes are from. The harsh African Sun and the cool evenings brought by the icy winds of the Southern Ocean create outstanding conditions for growing these grapes.

WATER FROM THE TABLE

Good water makes good Vodka. Period. So we use mineral rich, sandstone filtered water straight from the Table Mountain Aquifer - an abundant, naturally filtered water resource of fabled purity.

ICE-COLD, CRYSTAL CLEAR

Mallemok Vodka is distilled at a cooler temperature, which allows the Vodka to retain its Chenin Blanc Grape character and results in a velvety mouth feel and full flavoured liquid - you’ll only ever want to drink it neat.

SMALL BATCHES, SINGLE FILTERED

Mallemok Vodka is made in small quantities using only handpicked Chenin Blanc grapes and single filtered for full flavour - our biggest challenge is making sure there is any left to bottle.
