A bold new taste is about to step onto the African scene; a taste that is set to change the way we think about gin. At the warm heart of the worldwide ginaissance comes a refreshing drink that reimagines this classic, smoothing the edges of its traditionally strong and bitter flavour to deliver something lighter, warmer and friendlier; a truly African original.
Orijin Marula launched in March ,as a game-changing addition to the white spirits category. Born in West Africa and crafted from distinctive African botanicals, the South African variant is gently blended with the unique smoothness of Marula to deliver a taste sensation that’s new and exciting but true to its African origins.
says Refilwe Moswane, Innovation Manager of Diageo South Africa.
Orijin, she says, turns the accepted norms of what gin is – what it tastes like and how it’s enjoyed – on its head. As a brand it is about honouring authentic traditions and tastes, and building on those to move forward into a new era of new experiences. And it comfortably takes its place among established brands because Orijin’s natural expertise in blending premium quality herbal drinks is recognised by Guinness, which distributes the brand.
As a natural progression of the campaign, Orijin Marula unveils Lamiez Holworthy, Ntando Duma and Major League DJ’s Bandile and Banele Mbere as it’s brand ambassordors. The ambassadors embody the ethos of originality (orijinality) with their unique and expressive style and sense of fashion as well as their work ethics, relatability to the brand consumers and always being true to their origins.
