Four creatives take on summer with Three Ships Mash Tun

Some of South Africa’s most admired creative innovators made Three Ships Mash Tun and cola their drink of choice this summer. And no wonder; Mash Tun is one of Three Ships Whisky’s boldest inventions yet, testament to the brand’s “Made Exceptional, Made Here” ethos.

In this spirit of local ingenuity, Three Ships Mash Tun partnered with four talented South Africans who are not afraid to push the boundaries of creativity, asking them to give us their take on the perfect summer’s day and #SummerIsServed. Each of them brought their own style to the challenge, as to be expected from respected creative powerhouses like Mandla Thabethe, Deji Dada, Kgomotso Neto Tleane, and Jarryd Kleinhans.

Style and fashion advocate and whisky afficionado Mandla Thabethe (the_great_duch) led the way with a rooftop shoot that combined the golden light over the Egoli skyline, his trademark straw boater and dapper attire, and the perfect summer drink.

Leading content creator and photographer/artist extraordinaire Deji Dada (dej_dada), showed fans and followers how to sip Mash Tun poolside, by setting up a shoot in a mysterious, unnamed location straight out of the pages of a lifestyle fashion mag.

Kgomotso Neto Tleane’s (kgomotso_neto) images have been celebrated around the world for their authentic look into the lives of people in inner city Jozi. This summer, he gave us a look into his own world, with a relaxed, personal reflection on the year’s wrap-up with music, photography and, of course, Mash Tun and cola.

If anyone knows how to make summer – or anything else for that matter – look good, it’s Jarryd Kleinhans (_jarryd). A photographer with a talent for glamour, he captured a laid-back South African summer afternoon perfectly.

He followed that up with a shoot at the swimming pool that makes a midnight dip and a sip of Mash Tun and cola just the thing to cool down the hot SA summer.
