Nocturne, a brand new intimate and refined establishment in Stellenbosch, is teaming up with Laphroaig for their Taste Trailblazers campaign. The dining experience aims to bridge the gap between food and mixology, with a focus on sustainability, authenticity, seasonality, and locality.


Guests can anticipate an 6-course seasonally curated menu, expertly paired with Laphroaig beverages, in a multi-sensory and interactive setting. The chef and mixologist will directly engage with guests, offering an intimate experience. Nocturne was founded by chef duo Darren Badenhorst and Callan Austin, also owners of Eat Out Retail Capital Best New Restaurant, Dusk. The menu draws inspiration from Dusk’s test kitchen and fermentation lab, exploring innovative boundaries in South Africa’s food and beverage sector.
