Namibia is known for its unique and flavorful gins. Many of these gins incorporate botanicals and ingredients found only in Namibia, resulting in distinctive and complex flavor profiles. One popular Namibian gin is the Naute Kristall Gin, which is made from grapes grown in the Naute Vineyard and infused with a range of botanicals, including local indigenous plants such as !Nara and Devil’s Claw.
Other Namibian gins include the Desert Rose Gin, which includes botanicals like Namibian Myrrh, and the Xwama Cultural Village Gin, which incorporates a variety of local herbs and spices. Namibian gins are often enjoyed on their own or mixed into creative cocktails, and are gaining popularity among gin enthusiasts worldwide.

One of the unique features of our 100m2 lounge is the Lüderitz Speed Challenge Wall of Champions, which showcases the winners of this world-renowned event.

This feature is sure to delight enthusiasts and adds to the overall appeal of our lounge.
