On 28 November 2013, House and Leisure, in association with Old Mutual, brought you our first Cape Town Night Market at Wembley Square. We selected some of South Africa’s foremost designers, makers and artisans to showcase and sell their creations. From fashion and decor items to homeware and jewellery, visitors certainly took advantage of the beautiful offerings on sale. Guests sipped on welcome cocktails from Cruz Vodka and Magnum Cream Liqueur, as well as delicious wines from Glen Carlou while they browsed through the local designer wares and artisan foods. Added to this was live entertainment by Jared and Grattan Coetzer. The House and Leisure team also celebrated our 20th anniversary issue with a glass of Glen Carlou MCC and macaroons from Cassis. See below for information about the vendors from our Cape Town night market. VENDORS: GLEN CARLOU About: In 2012 Glen Carlou celebrated its 25th vintage – a comparatively young estate in the South African wine industry – yet we are proud to say, we have built a reputation as one of South Africa’s leading producers. Under the ownership and management of the world-renowned Hess Family, we continue to produce wines of exceptional quality and consistency, growing from strength to strength. Since 1985, we have only had three winemakers – whose collective passion has ensured that Glen Carlou has produced consistently exceptional wines for almost three decades. For us, creating classic, award-winning wines is a wonderful and gratifying journey, but it is not the destination. Consistency, expertise and a commitment to always deliver beyond expectation is what we strive for with every bottle of Glen Carlou wine. This is why we are known as the ‘Curators of Classic Wines’.

A year on Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy drink has been one of the top selling energy drinks in Woolworths and of the fastest growing across retailers nationally. There is a real movement towards healthier and sustainable living, and this is where the creation of Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy stemmed from. The ingredients are all completely organic and free of any toxic chemicals like herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, GMO, preservatives, artificial colours, flavours or synthetic caffeine. A mix of the finest Sicilian organic lemon, Iranian organic pomegranate and German and Austrian elderberry juices are added to a little raw unprocessed cane sugar. The active caffeine ingredient is Brazilian Guarana raw green coffee bean extract and organic green tea, which give a more sustained release of energy than other energy drinks. Ginseng is finally added which helps mental performance and provides additional energy and support for the body’s immune system.

Cruz Vintage Black is four times distilled and three times charcoal filtered and is made with America’s finest winter wheat (the same wheat used to make breads and pastries). Cruz is then blended with pure spring water drawn from a 60-metre deep water aquifer, where the water has naturally been filtered through limestone, untouched by humans and pollution. The result is a luxury vodka produced with intense purity and exceptional smoothness. Cruz Vintage Black recently won Gold at the London Vodka masters. It can be enjoyed on the rocks or with your favourite vodka mixer. It is available countrywide in all premium bars, clubs and restaurants.

Delectably rich, smooth and creamy with an alcohol content of 17%, Magnum Cream is a uniquely indulgent drinking experience; the gentle glow of whisky lingering on the palate as the cream gradually melts away. Served chilled, this is an ideal drink for after-dinner sipping. Best enjoyed poured over crushed ice, added to cocktails or even to coffee for a decadent twist.

BellaReathe believes in handmade and unique produce that speak to the wearer’s individuality and uniqueness. You wear jewellery because it reflects something about your character and personal experiences, and everybody is different, so I want my jewellery to resonate with each individual who wears it. I look to create jewellery that reflects the wearer’s courage to stand apart from the crowd, to be confident in one’s own individuality and therefore their own distinct beauty. I love organic processes and responses, and I love to play with jewellery; my best ranges come from just playing with metal, letting it organically form into something beautiful and exciting.
