What you'll do

New Zealand is one of a 2 countries in the world that allow home distilling. This "home-brew" atmosphere makes for some of the most unique spirits in the world. First meet at a trendy bar located well off of Queenstown's beaten path and you'll be given a handmade 'zine style notebook to take your notes. From there we'll take an easy walk through Queenstown, visiting a selection of craft establishments and sampling Queenstown's more rare spirits. You'll get behind the scenes with the distilling processes, unique samples, and try tiny cocktails. We finish back at the Yonder.

We'll roll by small batch, unique, rare, weird spirits and everything in between. Brandy makers, New Zealand O.G.'s of distilling, family run micro- still's and experimental liquour's will be our agenda. Some of this stuff you can't taste anywhere else in the world. Expect some memorable flavors.
