Since time immemorial peoples of most cultures have practiced the art of fermentation and distillation converting the fruits of their orchard into elixirs that warmed the cockles of their hearts.

Fortunately, some of these jealous guarded recipes have been passed down through the ages. One such special elixir is Jack's Jungle Juice.

Nyati JJJ is a proud member of the noble Mampoer family, a group of spirits first made in the Cape Colony soon after the arrival of Dutch Settlers some 350 years ago.

Only the finest fruits are used by Uncle Jack, who personally oversees the fermentation and distillation never wavering from the secret recipe and never compromising on the quality of his special brand of premium Mampoer.

Nyati JJJ's subtle flavour embodies the pioneering spirit of the adventurer who heeds the call of wildest Africa.


Mampoer (n.) - a powerful fruit-based liqueur that’s as South African as you can get. The old people used to distill (stook) it illegally, and you can be sure that that lead to a few parties and other (- ahem -) happy incidents! … It’s quite legal today, but it’s still just as much fun. Ask anyone!
