Named for the Hector’s dolphins that swim off Akaroa, Hector’s Gin comes in flavour profiles foraged from Banks Peninsula. Pinot Noir from vines in French Peak Vineyard, syrah, kelp, thyme, lavender and lemon myrtle gathered by local foragers are blended with classic botanicals to create a vibrant yet velvety smooth ruby red gin with notes of a fruit forward pinot noir. Bright, silky and elegant with a dash of spice. The addition of Waiheke Island Syrah adds a tannic structure to the gin while maintaining a slight sweetness on the front palate.
Whangaroa. Hakaroa. Akaroa. Many have told my story. But only one has distilled the essence of this place to make poems that run over your tongue. Songs that sing in your mouth.
Every bottle is a taste of this place. Kelp gathered in Wainui, lavender from Little River, rosehips from Little Akaloa, wild thyme from the Peninsula. Locally grown grapes, lemons, and botanicals for gins that are a true evocation of this beautiful place. Tales of the harbour told in Gin.
