The Beer

With master brewer Nushka Botha at the helm, Black Horse has seven premium brews in their repertoire. Patrons can expect to find two types of IPA, a lager, Ginger beer (plain and strawberry infused), a weiss and a dry beer. Rated as one of the top micro breweries in Gauteng, Black Horse knows how to brew a great batch of suds.

Black Horse

The Distillery

The distillery was established in 2014 on the Black Horse family estate by Marius Bezuidenhout and Bernard Botha. They pride themselves on hand-crafting the purest vapour-infused gin from fresh mountain spring water. Each bottle of Morality Amber gin, as Black Horse calls their creations, is distilled and bottled by hand from single malt barley, vapour-infused through a botanicals basket with juniper berries, lemon and orange peel and a range of other spices, then casked in old French oak barrels giving a refreshing, flavourful and smooth finish. Do yourself a favour, if you find a bottle of their gin anywhere, buy it immediately. It is by far one of the best gins - both locally and internationally - that we've ever tasted.

Black Horse

The Kitchen

Don't expect pub grub at Black Horse. Though there are chicken wings and burgers, one can also expect creamy mushroom pastas, gourmet pizzas and salmon cured in beetroot and... vodka! The food is well prepared, beautifully presented and finely priced. The menu has been well curated to accompany the beer crafted on site.

The Wedding Venue

There is truly no other banquet hall in South Africa with the views of the Black Horse Banquet hall. The Magnificent room overlooks the Zeekoeihoek Valley just outside Magaliesburg, and a huge glass wall inside has a view of the Black Horse Brewery & Distillery. Large glass doors allow the hall to be opened up completely and the story high sliding steel door provides an enchanted entrance. The hall seats up to 150 guests comfortably with a large dance floor. The bar is conveniently located inside the hall and provides a full selection of Black Horse Craft beers on tap. Read Shaun & Christine's wedding adventure which started at the Black Horse!
