A Story I Wrote About Caperitif For Whetstone Magazine

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

I am thrilled to have contributed to the inaugural edition of Whetstone Magazine, a new publication about food origins. Please read my story about Caperitif: a wonderfully heady Prohibition-era aperitif revived in the 21st century by Cape winemaker Adi Badenhorst and Danish mixologist Lars Lyndgaard-Schmidt. You can subscribe to this beautiful print and online magazine at www.whetstonemagazine.com.

Note: The publication mistakenly credited all the photos to me, but some (the nicer ones!) were taken by Maree Louw. Apologies to Maree.

  1. Hi Ilana, I just want to tell you that I really enjoyed reading your very well written article ‘A Ghost Ingredient Recrafted’ its an exceptional read. I recently went to AA Bardenhorst and met Adi with my wife and friends of ours and was fortunate enough to taste some of his great wines from the Swartland region. At the end we tasted some of his Capritif and your article struck a chord with me ! It was well researched and written…just thought I would let you know.

    Kind Regards

    1. Hi David, How lovely of you to write and tell me this. I’m so glad that you enjoyed both the wines and the article. All the best!
