Dave is a Dancing Sands Wasabi Gin fan, enjoying his mixed with equal parts tonic and soda water. Some days he needs a strong Wasabi G&T at the end of the day because running the physical distillery and cellar door is hard work! Dave is responsible for all of Dancing Sands’ production, bottling, labelling, shipping etc. You name it, Dave does it. When he’s not looking after the distillery or serving our customers in the cellar door, Dave unwinds with a long-distance run.
Peter loves a Dancing Sands Barrel Aged Gin mixed with East Imperial Grapefruit tonic, which helps him get our products across New Zealand and the world. As Commercial Director, Peter is responsible for all new and existing sale activities both within New Zealand and internationally, along with sitting on the Management Team alongside Sarah & Ben. When he’s not slinging gin, he’s out on the water teaching his two girls how to surf.
Ben is a Dancing Sands Wasabi Gin man through-and-through, whether it be in a Red Snapper or a Dirty G&T, he reaches for the Dancing Sands Wasabi gin after helping Sarah run the business and looking after our strategic and marketing activities. Ben helps shape the face of the business out to our customers and also has the glorious job of developing all of our products, his happy place. When he’s not at work, you’ll find Ben out on the mountain bike trails or playing with his two girls at home.
Sarah loves a Sun-Kissed Spritz: Dancing Sands Sun-Kissed gin mixed with Prosecco and garnished with a strawberry. As Managing Director, Sarah is responsible for guiding the business along with overseeing our distillery operations. When she leaves the distillery at the end of the day, Sarah goes home to be Mum to her 5 year old and 3 year old and somehow fits in being a competitive runner too.
