Qualito Distillery Tour & Tasting (36 Potgieter Street, Phalaborwa, Limpopo) — tours of the increasingly popular Qualito Craft Distillery are a must for gin, whisky and vodka enthusiasts, as well as for travelers that are looking for a great way to spend an afternoon in the Lowveld. Tours need to be booked in advance because, thanks to the excellent quality and undeniably superior flavors of these spirits, this is a hotspot for tourists and locals alike.
In the distillery itself, visitors get to watch as the expert distillers carefully guide the process from choosing the best grains to crafting something that is nothing short of a creation, served on ice or neat, and guaranteed to tantalize the discerning palate.
A highlight on the distillery tour is to sample the Qualito’s Route 71 Craft Vodka Crush or some of the Craft Vodka Infusions. These are excellent digestifs that double-up as desserts. Taste the undertones of watermelon, litchi or coffee as you sip on these extraordinary spirits. The boutique cocktails are a must for visitors looking for a taste explosion with a classy finish.
