Curiosity Gin stands out from the crowd because that’s where the real action is. We bring you gins that are truly authentic and individual, with complex and unique flavour profiles that could only come from somewhere beneath the Long White Cloud. This is our reason for existing.
Our passion to create new innovative spirits with strong flavours evocative of a bold New Zealand character is reflected in the name Curiosity Gin.
Created in honour of Reefton legend Little Biddy, a pipe-smoking, gin-toting, 4 foot tall gold miner. Our search for native botanicals takes us deep into the same West Coast rain forest where Biddy once fossicked for gold, to craft a uniquely New Zealand gin with a pioneer’s attitude.
Winner of the Alcohol Category in the recent Artisan Awards, we wanted to bring back the charm and charisma of the 1900s while creating an honest gin that kiwis could celebrate as their own. With a commitment to keeping things local, 1919 Distilling uses a 600L still that was custom built in New Zealand, source botanicals from small artisan suppliers some of which include Otago cherries and Raw Manuka Honey from the Bay of Islands.
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.

The word Alchemist has a rich history tied to many early Greek scholars. The early Alchemist were able to create gold from anything. The word Alchemist has since then formed into a person who creates something through a seemingly magical process. We do this in the way of creating our own liquid gold in the form of a cocktail.
