Celebrate Summer the South African way

It’s summer time in the southern hemisphere, which means outdoor get togethers, sunshine, pool time and good times! Tant’ Sannie se Milktart liqueur is a delicious and unique way to celebrate with friends and family. It’s a deep, creamy, custard-like liqueur perfect for special occasions or a cosy night in.
