Ibhu // South Africa
This South African spirit uses botanicals harvested from elephant dung, which is then sterilized prior to addition. Made in batches, each gin will vary in flavor depending on the location and season that the dung is collected. Available at specialist retailers in South Africa, 15% of the gin's profits are donated to the Africa Foundation to support its work in wildlife conservation at Phinda Game Reserve.

In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
