Summit’s Reach Gin, crafted with the might of a wheat spirit base, offers a sturdy strength with crisp alpine finish. The drinking is juniper forward, with a burst of mountain botanicals.
Like the jagged peaks that defy gravity to pierce the southern sky, this gin is an ode to the determined. The face-whipping freshness of mountain air. Ice melt imbued with herbaceous botanicals.
THE TRUE TASTE, AND TRIUMPH OF THE SUMMIT.
The site of Auld Distillery has been growing grain since 1883. Three generations of family – all named Robert – have worked the land in this isolated corner of New Zealand, right at the bottom of the world. Remote and beautiful, Southland is fertile country – perfect for crops. Perfect, too, for cultivating curiosity.
They're passionate about this place they call home. They know the nuances and eccentricities of the land, and follow the change of the seasons; the cycle of growth and harvest. But they wanted to discover more, to see what else they could produce right here on their piece of pastoral paradise: "What if we could bottle the essence of our land, our history, our story."
By combining grain from their paddocks and pure water from their own spring in their onsite distillery, their spirits truly embodies the grain-to-glass philosophy. It’s about patience, curiosity and the desire to create a legacy for the future, beginning in the southernmost distillery in New Zealand.
