The Zulu Kingdom’s first craft distillery, Distillery 031 is located in the Station Drive Creative Precinct in Durban. Distilling began in 2009, and the Distillery was opened to the public in 2015.

Distillery 031’s range reflects the best of contemporary Durban and its unique flavours. Like the multiple faces of this coastal paradise, this artisanal distillery offers a journey of discovery.

Distillery 031 is pioneering high quality local artisanal spirits, including Durban Dry Gin, 031 Vodka, Agua Zulu Cachaça and Ancestors Absinthe. Our spirits are produced in small batches, and we are actively involved in every step of the process, from the sourcing of the best local raw materials to hand distilling, bottling and labelling.
