Details

Lighthouse New Zealand Gin is smooth, fresh with citrus notes. The gin base comes from sugar cane imported from South Africa. The pure neutral spiriit is combined with pure water, filtered down through the New Zealand Rimutaka Ranges, and the nine hand selected botanicals, are then macerated in the copper-pot still overnight before the first distillation. The gin is re-distilled without the botanicals. This double distillation process creates a gin with a much more refined, smooth and elegant palate. Lighthouse Gin has a very fine, soft tone with individual botanical notes. The citrus and juniper are finely balanced giving a fresh, clean start on the palate with the deeper spices adding length and complexity to the mid palate. Botanicals include juniper, coriander, lemon and orange zest, cinnamon, almonds, orris root and liquorice root.

Established in 2005 by Neil Catherall. The design and inspiration for this gin came from the Cape Palliser Lighthouse at the southernmost tip of the North Island of New Zealand. With the famous lighthouse in mind, founder and Master Distiller, Neil Catherall, spent several years researching and experimenting with a variety of native botanicals, including fresh zest from New Zealand grown Navel Oranges and Yen Ben Lemons, to create a unique small batch gin. During his years of research, Neil designed a 200 litre copper still from scratch and had it built by the local craftsmen. With his custom still built and his unique botanical formula complete, Neil went to work crafting the first batches of Lighthouse gin. As the production and demand for the gin increased, distiller Rachel Hall joined the Lighthouse team in 2010 to assist Neil. Rachel spent the next few years learning as much as she could from Neil before being named Head Distiller of Lighthouse Gin in 2014.

    Me and my partner got this while we were visiting New Zealand and I bought this as a surprise gift for his birthday. I was incredibly impressed with the speed and value of buon vino and the gin lived up to our memories
