Operating a distillery in Golden Bay might seem impractical. It is isolated from the rest of New Zealand, with just one long winding road in and out, which has road closures occurring often – it can be a bit of a logistical nightmare. However Golden Bay’s natural beauty, and abundance of natural resources more than make up for its tricky location.
Being based in Golden Bay has inspired us to create our uniquely flavoured gins: to be able to see beauty in the unusual, to not be constrained by tradition, that by taking away the rules you allow for natural creativity.
We’ve included a few photos of our favourite places around Golden Bay. We hope you come visit one day and see all its beauty for yourself.
