Why we love spirits

Stilman Marius Bezuidenhout brings a range of hand crafted and hand bottled spirits to Black Horse Estate.

Black Horse Distillery is a craft distillery nestled in the Zeekoeihoek Valley in the hills of Magaliesburg. We specialize in small-batch whiskeys that reflect the rugged beauty of our surroundings. We use local grains, potatoes and pure spring water from the Magaliesburg Mountains to create a range of whiskeys, gins and vodkas best enjoyed in the great outdoors.

About Marius

Marius was born in the Western Cape, then pursued a career in technology to later travel the world . Seeking a career that was more meaningful and less financially rewarding than technology, Marius joined up with Bernard Botha to start Black Horse Distillery. Realizing the potential for creative expression through spirits, he sought to change the lives of patrons one delicious spirit at a time. Marius now runs the still and tasting room and zens out through photography, adventure travel, and enjoying an occasional whiskey in the great outdoors.
