Craft Distillery and Cheesery
Welcome to One33
One33 Craft Distillery and Cheesery is the dream of Gerda and Rodney Milford. Being a regular visitor to St Francis Bay for 20 years and more, it was time to settle permanently in St Francis Bay.
The One33 craft spirits range is inspired by the freshness and beauty of the Eastern Cape, and honours the Eastern Cape’s early inhabitants, its treacherous coast and its rich fauna and flora.
Rodney and Gerda’s dream is to produce quality hand crafted products, and to create a place where locals and tourists can meet and share stories over our unique range of One33 craft spirits, cheese tastings with One33 craft spirits, have a drink in our pub or coffee shop, and enjoy our unique blend of street profiling One33‘s craft cheese, and enjoy the Eastern Cape.
Spirits of St Francis
The One33 range is distilled in St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape. One33 currently produces craft rum, gin, brandy and vodka.
The One33 rum is blended from two types of South African molasses and fermented using two types of yeast to give unique flavour and depth. The main yeast is used extensively in the Caribbean and Central America for producing quality rums, and is complemented with a red wine yeast to add fruit flavours and tones.
The award winning One33 Dark Rum is aged in 100 litre oak barrels with a high surface area to volume ratio, and in demijohns using special charred oak chips. The two aged rums are blended together before bottling giving a unique flavour and aroma.
One33 White is the foundation rum that is used in all the One33 products. One33 White is a smooth, light bodied rum, slightly sweet in flavour with subtle tones of molasses. After distillation, One33 White is settled in glass caskets for 21 days.
One33 White can be enjoyed on the rocks and is a popular choice for rum cocktails, like Mojito, Daiquiri or Cuba Libre. One33 White can also be mixed with a range of mixers.
Using One33 White, One33 Dark is aged in French oak barrels. One33 Dark has a rich textured finish that appeals to both rum and whiskey drinkers. One33 Dark can be enjoyed on the rocks or in rum cocktails, like Mai Thi, Rum Punch, Sangaree and Pina Colada. One33 Dark can also be mixed with a range of mixers.
One33 Black is a mixed spirit using One33 White that is aged in small Virginian oak barrels, and is blended with a fortified wine based spirit. One33 Black is refreshing and is slightly sweet with a full balance of flavour and aromas. One33 Black is best enjoyed on the rocks, or can also be mixed with a range of mixers.
