Curious by nature, Curiosity brings you gins with unique personality and a New Zealand flavour that stands out from the crowd. Made in small batches, whole botanicals are steeped in the base spirit for 24 hours before re-distilling, through ‘Yoyo’ the copper pot still, creating a true hand distilled aromatic gin.


Little Biddy Gin is crafted in honour of Reefton legend, Little Biddy. A gin-toting, 4-foot-tall gold prospector. Our search for native botanicals takes us deep into the same West Coast rainforest where Biddy once fossicked for gold, to craft a unique New Zealand gin with a pioneer’s attitude. Our Distillery, Reefton Distilling Co. is a modern distillery in an age-old town, producing a range of award-winning, small batch distilled spirits with a distinct West Coast flavour.


"By day they are two unassuming Wellington bureaucrats who move
unnoticed, hidden within the shadows of the nine-to-five, their identity
concealed by spreadsheets and government policy;
...by night their passion for fine things is awoken and from the depths
of Wellington's 1st gin distillery they create the finest of craft

South Africa’s premium citrus gin, is crafted from the wonderfully sweet and aromatic soft citrus fruit, sun-ripened and handpicked by selected mandarin growers from across the world.

Sundried ClemenGold peels take the flavour lead with eight botanicals to produce this smooth, Classic Cape Dry style gin with subtle hints of citrus.


Blush is here to tickle your taste buds! Let our Rhubarb Gin or our latest Boysenberry take you on a flavour adventure. And YES our legendary Gin Slushies will be back and better than ever. Drink Local, Be Social #BlushGinNZ


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.


Twelfth Hour Distillery was born from our desire to fuse fresh, tantalizing, exotic botanicals from around the globe with premium New Zealand gin – made by our group of friends for you to share with yours.  Small batch distillation ensures handcrafted premium quality every time.


An emerging distillery set on the foothills of Mt Fyffe where the mountains meet the sea. Woolshed and Shearwater, two distinctly different artisan gins inspired by the rich history, local environment and unique Kaikōura birdlife. Justine blends her locally sourced botanics with an oceanic twist to tantalise your taste buds.


Inspired by Aotearoa’s amazing biodiversity, award winning Dr Beak gin will take you on a journey and expand your taste horizons. All but one of our botanicals and raw ingredients used are sourced locally. For every bottle of Dr Beak gin sold 5% of profits are donated to Forest & Bird.
