THE PREMIUM AFRICAN SPIRITS COMPANY
For too long the spirits industry has neglected the quality, craft and produce that exists in our continent.
It has ignored consumers that are looking for authentic and diverse drinking experiences and products that give them something new.
We believe it is time for African spirits to sit on the world stage and give consumers a taste of the finest craft and quality, directly from the source of humanity itself, Africa.
That is why Spearhead Spirits have created Vusa Vodka and Bayab Gin, two multi-award winning Premium African Spirits, made in Africa, with African ingredients, to disrupt the industry and delight customers, worldwide.
We are on a mission to put Africa on every bar back in the world and connect the world to Africa, through premium spirits. Join us.
Vusa is a premium copper distilled sugarcane Vodka from Africa. We distill in small batches using our copper still, “Kagiso’, to give Vusa a silky smooth finish and ensure exceptional quality. Our unique filtration process using the shells of the Baobab fruit creates a super crisp finish.
