South Gin

The reason South is so popular is the purity of the water that falls on their fiords and surrounding highlands. By introducing this water to GE free wheat they create a grain neutral spirit, distilling twice, 'washing in spring water' then distilling again. The botanicals of juniper berries, lemon, orange, coriander seeds, angelica leaves, orris and gentian root are blended in and then softly shaded with local manuka berries and kawakawa leaves for a fragrance 'similar to walking through the bush after it's rained'. These same native botanicals, kawakawa and manuka, also form a large part of "Rongoa Maori", the traditional medicines of the Maori people of Aotearoa. It's a unique taste that reflects the natural flavor.
