We use grains from the Canterbury plains, foraged local botanicals, and pure water, direct from the Southern Alps.
Our gin is made from scratch using barley. No bought-in base spirit for us! #nowhey #allgrainallday

All grain spirits
Gin made from scratch
Did you know that the majority of gin producers in New Zealand buy in base spirit? If you ask us, that's cheating! We make our base spirit from barley, distill it three times, then infuse with botanicals.
Moonshine made with three grains
Our moonshine is made in the "spirit" of revolution - think corn liquor brewed illegally in a mangrove swamp! We're not 100% redneck, so we've added barley and rye to the corn base.
All of our grains come from the Canterbury plains, meaning a more sustainable supply chain. Many of our botanicals are foraged locally, or grown in the distillery garden.
Our "rustic chic" distillery got it's name because the buildings used to house a cheese factory. Out of the ashes of cheese, a distillery was resurrected.
