Our Spirits

Bourbon - Explorer Series 2021

Our first Explorer Series release is a Straight American Bourbon, made in Indiana, and aged in America for over two years, then finished in an ex-Marlborough NZ Pinot Noir barrel.

It's a heavy wheat mash bill and it takes classic Bourbon flavours and combines it with subtle dark fruit notes, making for a truly unique Bourbon.

Single barrel release! Get in fast to be sure you get your hands on this one-of-a-kind whisky.

Maple Moonshine

Limited Release for 2021! We've taken our Original Moonshine and instead of using just water to dilute it to 50%abv, we've also used Grade 'A' Canadian Maple Syrup.

Sweet maple with a sturdy base - everyone can get on board with this.

Add it to cocktails, desserts, or try it straight.

Smokin' Right Rear Cinnamon Moonshine

To us, Moonshine is a really unique product and something not often available in great quantity in New Zealand. Ours is 100% legal but we're using time honoured recipes and fermentation techniques to make sure this is authentic a taste as possible. 

Made with New Zealand corn and infused with cinnamon.

Original Corn Mash Moonshine

Our idea of Vodka! Made from a traditional recipe with New Zealand corn, it's not as neutral as Vodka, but it's much more interesting to work with.

Mix it, try it straight, age it! There's a lot you can do with this, including adding fruits or syrups to make your own blend or liqueur.
