They’re a beer of firsts: The first to add a second hop to their brew (one for taste, one for aroma), and the first to be awarded the Dutch Royal Seal of Approval and build a 7km pipeline from the brewery to the original water source in The Netherlands. They’re also one of the top 10 most environmentally friendly breweries in the world, recycling 99% of all waste and, of course, they’re one of the few that chose not to eliminate their iconic Swingtop when others moved to a bottle cap. Grolsch is for the individual who values true artistry and craftsmanship and for those who choose to see the world a little differently. Cheersch!

Only the finest vineyards in the Western Cape are selected to produce these wines that are abundant in flavour and true to their varietal character. With their close affinity to their natural surroundings, Fleur du Cap wines lend themselves perfectly to pairings with nature’s gifts of unrefined salts, from indigenous Khoisan salt from the West Coast to exotic Black Lava salt from the volcanic peaks of Hawaii. Fleur du Cap wines are made at Die Bergkelder, the famous ‘cellar in the mountain’ on the outskirts of Stellenbosch.

Signature3 EarthStar was born of the combination of Paul Kristafor’s two passions: nature and technology. Living in remote parts of Africa for many years exposed him to the natural beauty of wood sculpted by the elements. Combine LED technology with these natural organic forms and you have an EarthStar, an exquisite piece of wood that isn’t part of the luminaire, it is the luminaire! Earthstar luminaires are made using wood collected with care and sensitivity to the environment. We only use deadfall and driftwood, or harvested invasive alien species as part of an eradication programme.
