WIN a Mar­garita Moon­shine ham­per

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Weekend Life -

Hav­ing put Amer­i­can-style moon­shine firmly on the lo­cal drinks menu, Sil­ver Creek Craft Dis­tillery has launched its Mar­garita Moon­shine as the ideal sum­mer party starter or laid­back sun­downer.

With its fresh lime-green colour and zingy flavour, Mar­garita Moon­shine was in­spired by the easy-go­ing, ev­ery­one’swel­come spirit of a Mex­i­can fi­esta, and is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the dis­tillery’s range of un­aged, small-batch moon­shines.

The brain­child of well­known ex-PE hos­pi­tal­ity guy Mark Tav­erner, Sil­ver Creek’s first range of South­ern Moon- shines snapped up five medals at the Michelan­gelo In­ter­na­tional Wine & Spir­its Awards within months of launch­ing – and the new mar­garita ver­sion landed a sim­i­lar coup with a gold medal at the 2018 SA Women’s Wine & Spir­its Awards.

“In mak­ing the Mar­garita Moon­shine, we wanted to cre­ate some­thing laid back and fun-lov­ing.

“The clas­sic Mar­garita, said to have first orig­i­nated in a 1930s bar in Ti­juana, was the in­spi­ra­tion.

“When you’re drink­ing our Mar­garita Moon­shine, you’ll feel right there on an end­less beach in Can­cun or par­ty­ing in one of the city’s most vibey night­clubs,” prom­ises Tav­erner, founder and chief dis­tiller of Sil­ver Creek.

Keep it in the fridge, ready to serve straight-up as a shooter, or go mar­garita-style and serve it over crushed ice in a salt-rimmed glass with a slice of lime – and serve any­where with re­laxed, happy people.

Mar­garita Moon­shine, and the full Sil­ver Creek range, is avail­able lo­cally at Pre­stons and in se­lected bars and restau­rants, or or­der on­line at
