When Mulderbosch founder Larry Jacobs bought the farm in 1989 the community referred to the property as “vuilplasie” Afrikaans for “dirty little farm”. Shortly after he partnered with Mike Dobrovic known as the South African Mr Sauvignon Blanc and together they cleaned up the property and planted the first vineyards. A (small) cellar was later built and the first set of wines were released: Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The dream was to produce wine but certainly not just any wine; they had to consistently reflect innovation creativity and excellence. Soon Mulderbosch gained international traction with a growing list of accolades and awards. In 2011 Mulderbosch was ushered into a new era of management introducing Adam as head of winemaking. These changes ensured further international success and our position as leaders within the South African wine industry. As an innovator Mulderbosch was the first producer in the country to successfully create a barrel-fermented style of Chenin Blanc and so our ‘Steen Op Hout’ label was born. Trailblazing the infant rosé category with our Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon continued this thread of innovation. Today Mulderbosch has achieved commercial success world-wide and has affirmed our identity as a producer of distinctive wines representative of the soils and climate in which our grapes are grown.

It is a fitting tribute to the intrepid gentlemen merchantmen of London, Ralph Fitch & William Leedes, who set sail on the Tyger in 1583 in search of new, exotic tastes in India and the East.
Distiller Charles Bryant was soon joined by his brother Glenn and friend Luigi Marucchi who shared the desire to create something really special. When it came to the still, we decided to re-invent the wheel by custom-designing a traditional copper still to our precise specifications. Our research into molecular distillation revealed that some of the delicate botanicals would be better preserved by being distilled under vacuum and blended later. What started off as an exploration of technology and botany evolved into a passion – and that’s how Six Dogs Gin came into the world.
