About Jorgensen's Distillery

Jorgensen's Distillery is the brainchild of Roger Jorgensen a career farmer and winemaker who is also the creator of Savingnac Potstill Brandy.

Jorgensen's Distillery is not only home to the very well know (and well received) Savingnac Potstill Brandy, but also Field of Dreams Absinthe, Jorgensen's Gin and Primitiv Vodka. These spirits are handcrafted and Roger continues to learn and grow and test new methods and improve his skills.

If you haven't yet heard about Savingnac brandy you might be surprised to find out that it has a very long history. Dating back to the 17th century when the French Huguenot farmers came to the Wellington region because of it's rich soil. Sauvignac became an expression of South African wine. The wine was twice distilled in copper pots, which enhanced the flavour and then left to mature for at least 10 years in French oak. This allowed for the liquid to intensify in colour, flavour and alcohol. And the wonderful flavours of Sauvignac potstill brandy was born! Come and taste the unique craft from this distillery - Jorgensen's passion shines through.
