American Straight Bourbon
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.
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 for great flavour.
Original Corn 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.
Nine Fathoms Canterbury Gin
Citrus, Hops, Horopito, & Juniper are a few of the great scents and flavours you can expect from this unique gin.
100% grain-to-glass, Nine Fathoms Gin is meant to embody New Zealand flavours with some twists. This is a 'Navy Strength' Gin which means it clocks in at 57% abv. Whether you want to sip it straight or mix it into a "Cloudy" Gin & Tonic, this gin will stand up.

The Story Begins
At the start of the 20th century, the New Zealand government sent a request to the Canadian government requesting large game for the creation of a new wildlife reserve for the purpose of hunting.
Canada obliged and sent the first animals, including Moose, in 1900. After a failed settlement attempt in the area near Hokitika, a second request was made later in the decade.
In 1910, ten moose calves (one in Wellington in image) arrived at Supper Cove in Fiordland and the myth began. It's believed that the population thrived for a few decades but after 1952, no confirmed sightings have taken place.
