From the founder of Woodstock Gin, Simon von Witt, comes a new and exciting spirit brand called 5 Pence. The name has an interesting story behind it, which came about initially through his wife’s obsession with the name Spencer. He made promises to call a baby boy or male puppy Spencer. Needless to say, there was no baby boy called Spencer, but a new gin was borne with a similar sounding name. 5 Pence also provides a direct link between SA and the UK, which was once under British rule and during that time a bottle of spirits could be bought for the sum of 5 pence. 5 Pence spirit range are also aptly named after the English coin, the smallest size coin in the largest, most powerful modern-day empire. Once found by chance signifies an inspiration of creativity. 5 People are involved in the founding of the company and 5 percent is going back to the conservation of fynbos.
