Hey. We’re Sugarbird.

A proudly South African, international quality, craft gin company, inspired by the people of our beautiful country.

“Where did the name come from?” you may (or may not) be asking. The Cape Sugarbird, found only in Southern Africa, gathers nectar from the same fynbos that gives us our uniquely Sugarbird flavour. You could say that this little bird encapsulates everything we are. Well, why not? It has great taste.

Made For You.  Founded by Rob Heyns and Nzeka Biyela, with Matt Bresler as investing partner.  We’re a misfit group of entrepreneurs who came together with the aim of making craft more accessible. but this isn’t about us, it’s about you… after all it’s Made For You.

People are ever-changing and evolving. Not just from year to year, from day to day, morning to night, you’re a different version of you. That’s why we’ve created a gin that changes and evolves with you. Whether you’re in the mood for gin on the rocks, a cocktail, a simple G&T, or one with all the trimmings thrown in: Sugarbird fits your life effortlessly.
