Distiller Information

Good George – Day off Gin
Good George came to life after a bunch of friends got together and decided, after years in hospitality and brewing, it was time to create their own craft beer brand. Their main motivation was to show people what great beer can be, convert drinkers from the norm and show them how to enjoy fantastic beer.
Good George is more than just a brewery, it is a complete hospitality and beer lover’s experience. There are now a number of Good George venues around the countryside, a core range of award winning beers and ciders, plus seasonal brews and now Gin!


Mount Brewing Co.
We’ve been brewing tasty brews in Mt Maunganui since 1996. We are super stoked to be living, brewing and drinking in the best place in NZ.
Mt Maunganui, the ocean, summer days, and waves are our biggest inspirations and the essence of who we are and what we represent.
We think good beers are for everyone! Which is why we try to brew beers and ciders for all tastebuds, styles, and ages (obviously over 18) 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.

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.
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.

Exceptional Flavours
Exceptional Flavours mission is to distribute and introduce well established super premium products and show their versatility to our customers. Their close relationships with Lindemans Brewery and the distillery F.X. de Beukelaer are excellent examples of how they put their values to practice.
They import and distribute high end beverages, all international award winning products that have proven their outstanding quality for many years. All their products are shipped in temperature-controlled containers and are stored in dark and chilled conditions to preserve their freshness and unique flavours.

Wild Diamond
The botanicals in Wild Diamond spirits are selected for their quality and character from around the world, or harvested locally. Certified organic botanicals are chosen whenever they are available. As is always the case with plants, they are seasonal and their flavour is subject to seasonal changes. We do our best to bring you the best. Local botanicals are mindfully hand harvested, and foraged from the wild surrounds of Wanaka, New Zealand.
Claire Iredale, our distiller comes from a professional background in Herbal Medicine, and this has brought a wealth of knowledge to botanical sourcing, and the research and development process involved in manufacturing botanical spirits.
A connection with plants and their components means that Claire is able to identify ideal flavour profiles, source best plant quality, extract these gently from the botanicals, and result in a botanical spirit that we hope you absolutely love.

The Source
The Source Rosehip Gin is forged by the four seasons that blow through the Cardrona Valley, Southern Alps, New Zealand. A natural matrix of locally foraged rosehip, together with traditional juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, lemon and orange zest, vapour-distilled into our Single Malt Spirit.
We refuse to chill-filter to deliver you full flavour and character. Because THE SOURCE is non-chill-filtered, you will notice the spirit clouds with dilution or when cold – a mark of distinction for this very rare and special drop.
The Source Gin, 2016 Gold Medalist at New York World Wine & Spirits Competition

Broken Heart Gin
The story of Broken Heart Gin begins with two Germans living in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Joerg was a pilot and Bernd an engineer. Both philosophers and committed Master Distillers, they formed their friendship around a still and a passion for perfecting spirits of rare complexity and fine flavours.
Those were the glory days and nothing captured the flavour of that time better than the inspiration Bernd and Joerg shared to create a superb gin – an intricate balance of eleven botanicals and surprisingly good with a twist of orange. It became a ritual, one a day at dusk, as day tumed to night, the taste of the time of in-between.
But life is no straight line. Bernd fell gravely ill, fought bravely, then sadly died. Where once had been a life that felt like it would go on forever, now were broken hearts.
As Joerg travelled down the healing road, he realised that as much as a broken heart hurts, it’s also a space to be filled with new beginnings. Like a gin at dusk, a moment of in-between. And so he decided to share the superb gin with the world and to call it Broken Heart for him.

Clemengold
Eight botanicals are used when distilling this handcrafted gin – ClemenGold and orange peel, cinnamon, ground almond, juniper berries, angelica and orris root, and coriander are macerated and vapour-infused to bring gin aficionados this smooth Classic Cape Dry style gin with subtle hints of citrus.

Kiwi Spirit Distillery
At Kiwi Spirits Distillery we believe good taste is good for the soul. We are a family owned and operated distillery redefining what quality means. We specialise in unique spirits handcrafted from the purest homegrown ingredients. With a family history of decades of distilling we’re staunchly dedicated to quality over quantity.
We are lucky to be located in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Golden Bay. This small town has long been a haunt for creative free thinkers, artists and aging hippies. Nestled between two spectacular National Parks with miles of stunning golden sand beach surroundings, it’s a very special corner of New Zealand.
We live and breathe local, almost all our ingredients come from our region and we are in the process of setting up gardens and orchards on our 25 acre distillery and cellar door. We are a creative bunch who love nothing more than experimenting, creating new tastes and pushing the limits on what is possible. Heart and soul goes into everything we make and we are proud to share what we have created with you.

Concept Brewing
We brew small batches of beer because that’s what we love to brew. Some call it passion. We call it the desire to share what’s in our hearts. Concept Brewing evolved because our brewer wanted to share with his friends the beers he loves to create.

Imagination
Imagination gin is the passionate adventure of good mates Simon Wilson and Chris Charteris.
After 2 years of scheming and experimenting (and a bit of drinking), in 2018 we established our distillery on the site of the original Tuatara Brewery in the lush Reikorangi Valley on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand. Being in the shadow of New Zealand’s pioneering craft beer makers is a constant inspiration to us to be the very best we can.
We source many of our ingredients locally from family owned and operated farms and orchards and from backyard home gardeners. These people, their families and communities we consider to be a hugely important part of what we are doing.

Sundown
If you’re searching for a new RTD to quench your thirst this summer, we’ve found it! Sundown Gin is infused with 100% freshly squeezed Hawkes Bay lemons combined with tonic for a timeless match. New Zealand made, it contains a unique blend of 9 botanicals with a kiwi twist – Juniper Berry, Angelica, Lemon, Orange, Coriander Seeds, Kawakawa, Horopito, Orris Root, Gentian Root. Sundown is a brand new 100% natural, preservative-free gin RTD made in sunny Tauranga. Available in Gin & Tonic with Lemon; Gin, Lime & Mint with Soda; and Gin & Cucumber with Soda.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.
