GIN EXHIBITORS

CURIOSITY GIN

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.

1919 DISTILLING

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.

JUNO GIN

Aotearoa’s goddess of gin. Juno Gin features fresh locally sourced botanicals, pure Taranaki mountain water and distilling artistry that has caught the notice of awards panels all over the globe. To complement their signature Extra Fine gin, Juno release a new gin each quarter that captures the unique abundance and essence of that season. From the rich narrative behind each gin to its gorgeous iconic black bottle and award-winning taste, expect the divine.

LITTLE BIDDY

Created in honour of Reefton legend Little Biddy, a pipe-smoking, gin-toting, 4 foot tall goldminer. Our search for native botanicals takes us 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.

ALCHEMIST MIXOLOGY

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.

SOUTHWARD DISTILLING

Southward Distilling is a local, Wellington based distillery. Born out of a passion for liquor, Southward is all about making Gin and Spirits that push the flavour boundaries and play to peoples unique pallets. We are Modern distilling, respecting tradition and telling our own Story.

BLUSH GIN

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

NATIONAL DISTILLERY

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.
