Awildian is handcrafted with utmost care and precision in their custom-made 150L CARL still from southern Germany in the heart of Thames. For their Coromandel Mānuka Gin, after maceration of 19 of the botanicals and a very gentle heating process, the distillation is undertaken with utmost care leading to a very narrow distillation ‘heart’ before they add soft water from the Coromandel ranges. They once again refrain from chill filtering to preserve the magic of this gin. Their mānuka gin is distilled in micro-batches and then rests in carefully toasted mānuka wood–coated with medicinal-grade mānuka honey – for no less than three months.
Combining their scientific know-how with a little wilderness, Coromandel Distilling is an experimental micro-distillery based in the heart of Thames, New Zealand. Combining the tradition and art of distillation with the magic of the land and the sea. Home of Awildian.
Daniela Suess & Paul Schneider, scientists by trade with a passion for distilling. Awildian is not the result of a straight-line career path or a neat cash-flow projection. It is the result of friendship, trust, inspiration, passion, and kindness. And of course a daring dose of plain craziness. Upon reflection, Daniela and Paul can already say it’s among their greatest adventures.
