Distiller Information
Indiginous
Indiginous gin is the passionate adventure of good mates Simon and Chris. After 2 years of experimenting and scheming (and a bit of drinking) they have established their distillery on the site of the original Tuatara Brewery in the Reikorangi Valley on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand. In the shadow of greatness, they focussed on creating gin which delights those who drink it by delivering a smoothness and clarity of flavour that says, quite simply and honestly, this is really good gin!
Juno Gin
Juno Extra Fine Gin is the heart of a collection of New Zealand premium gins produced by BeGin Distilling Ltd. BeGin Distilling Ltd is the husband and wife partnership of Taranaki locals Jo and Dave James – engineering meets the love of gin!
Why did they choose Juno as the goddess to reflect our gin?
Juno, wife of Jupiter and known as the goddess of marriage and domestic harmony. She is linked to the idea of vital force, fullness of vital energy and eternal youthfulness. Juno is the perfect goddess to oversee the marriage of flavours that happens within the copper pot still during distillation. Ensuring that the carefully selected botanicals and the beautiful water of Mt Taranaki come to fruition as an extra fine gin of distinction.
1919 Distillery
The concept of starting a distillery had been a dream of Soren’s for many years but picking a name wasn’t quite so easy! As it turned out, New Zealand had always been partial to a tipple or two, and in December 1919 the prohibition vote reached a tantalising 49.7%. No one knew it at the time, but this would be the closest New Zealand would ever get to introducing prohibition. And that was it! “1919 Distilling” was born in honour of the 50.3% of kiwis that stood up for there rights.
1919 have since been hard at work mixing mad science with good old Kiwi know how creating amazing flavor combinations with locally sourced botanicals including Manuka honey, Otago cherries and organic New Zealand lemons & oranges.
Denzien Urban Distillery
Founders Mark and Eamon set out to build a living Gin R&D Lab, distilling innovative small batch city gins right in front of their customers, and that they did. New Zealand’s first urban destination distillery, making brazen craft gin in a gorgeous copper still is located right in the heart of Wellington city. A haven for the Gin-quisitive, combining the luscious aromas of a commercial distillery with an industrial chic tasting shop. Located in Lombard Lane it rubs shoulders with fashion and food, providing a welcome distraction from the pressures of urban life.
Reefton Distillery Co – Little Biddy
Growing up in Reefton, Patsy remembers the simplicity of life on the West Coast, picking fruit in the garden, riding horses, and sipping on milkshakes at the milk bar. Her love of the region has been a constant and decades later when Patsy’s work as a project manager saw her return home, she began to look for ways that she could contribute to the revitalisation of her home town. Having spent her early years living on the site of the Westland Brewery, establishing a distillery was a natural step.
Created in honour of Reefton legend Little Biddy, a pipe-smoking, gin-toting, 4 foot tall goldminer. The search for native botanicals takes them deep into the same West Coast rainforest where Biddy once fossicked for gold, to craft a uniquely New Zealand gin with a pioneer’s attitude. The hills surrounding the distillery are rich in botanicals, if you know where to look. their search takes them deep into the densely forested West Coast region and to local gardens where they forage for native leaves, flowers and berries.
Dancing Sands
Ben, an American, and Sarah, a Brit, moved to New Zealand after falling in love over a long distance relationship. Many kilometers later, they found themselves in simply the most stunning place on the planet: Golden Bay, New Zealand.
After in trading in America and the UK for New Zealand, it was time to trade in corporate careers and keyboards for a still and a plan: bring the most stunning place on the planet to the world by creating an attention grabbing range of spirits and break all of the rules in the process.


Blush
Elliot, is the passionate restauranteur. He loves to experiment with all sorts of spirit infusions and concoctions.
Chris, is the engineering professional that spent 10 years in London running pubs, falling in love with hospitality industry.
What brought them together was their common passion for the wine and spirits industry and a love for great food.
Blush came to life after trying lots of spirit infusions. Some great some were not. The very first batch was made in a 500ml jam jar.
Thankfully their batches are slightly bigger now.
They didn’t intend to create a coloured gin, however the rhubarb gave up some beautiful shades that couldn’t be denied. After countless recipe tweaks and plenty of encouragement from their friends and family Blush Gin came to life. 
Bureaucrats Gin
Bureaucrats Gin is an innovative gin distillery located in Wellington NZ. They distill small batch hand crafted original gins that excite the gin lovers, hook the gin curious and convert everyone else to the endless possibilities that is gin.
Curiosity Gin
In late 2015 four friends got together and bought a small still, curious to see if we could develop distinctly New Zealand spirits.
Gin was the first target. We set out to develop a Gin that was truly individual and would stand out from the crowd and the tonic. After many trials and a few late nights mixing botanicals and of course tasting gins, recipe 23 was settled on and in late 2016 launched as Curiosity Gin. Curiosity Gin is made 100% in-house, in small batches, starting from locally sourced malted grain and the best quality botanicals available including East Coast Manuka berries and leaves, fresh Gisborne Orange and Lime zest and Otago Lavender for a true New Zealand twist.
Sundown
A fresh approach for a more sophisticated audience, their low sugar ready-to-drink gin cocktail tastes as good as it looks. Locally made in the sunny Bay of Plenty from 100% natural ingredients, you won’t find preservatives in their cheeky little pre-mix.

The National Distillery
Positioned on the corner of Ossian Street, The National Distillery Company (Formerly home of the National Tobacco Company and Rothmans) is the diamond in Napier’s architectural crown. Considered an architectural rarity, our Distillery is an impressive example of the birth of modernism in New Zealand Architect, Louise Hay’s original drawings were based on the idea of an ‘arch within a square.’ Hay’s entire design reflects the influence of Art Nouveau and Modernism on the architect. It’s the perfect setting for tasting our handcrafted selection of copper distilled New Zealand gin, vodka, rum and whisky. We blend modern distilling techniques with time-honoured traditions. We celebrate an exciting play between expansive creativity and an unbending commitment to making spirits that will stand the test of time. This duality defines us, inspiring our approach to crafting the finest selection of copper distilled New Zealand gins, vodkas, rums and whiskies available.

Mount Distillery

 

Tonic
Fever Tree Tonic
Since we put the lid on our first bottle of our Premium Indian Tonic Water, we haven’t wavered in our single-minded mission to bring quality, flavour and choice back to mixers. Innovation remains at the heart of Fever-Tree and we’ve developed a range of tonic waters that perfectly complement the varied flavour categories of gin. We’ve found three incredibly diverse varieties of ginger that, together, create a remarkably deep, fresh and true taste, which we’ve used to make a selection of ginger ales and ginger beer. We’ve developed a recipe for cola using Madagascan vanilla with the single purpose: to bring out the best in dark spirits, like whiskies and rum. We have lemonades using the finest, naturally sourced ingredients and a beautifully simple soda water too. Our story is about going to the ends of the earth in pursuit of the best and, the most exciting thing is, we’ve only just scratched the surface.

Other drinks

Wrap your laughing gear around our glassware and let the party begin.
