New Zealand’s only Sloe Gin is a strictly limited batch product. Made barrel by barrel in the traditional way, the finest imported Sloe Berries have been steeped in Curiosity Gin for several months in a barrel that was previously used to age Otago Pinot Noir. The resulting luscious red liqueur exhibits the smooth and intense bitter sweet fruit flavours of a classic Sloe Gin with an added rich back note from the Otago Pinot barrel.
The Spirits Workshop began in late 2015 when four whisky lovers got together and bought a small still, curious to develop distinctly New Zealand spirits. Their journey is to create, within their workshop, New Zealand’s most celebrated craft spirits. Quality food and beverages are always best enjoyed when there’s a story behind what you’re eating and drinking. They wondered what would it take to deliver their taste of New Zealand to the spirits world? Yoyo, the original 50 litre pot still was their initial step and for the first three years it produced the first four Curiosity Gins in the range. Yoyo is still in action and in 2019 they acquired a 500 litre still which currently produces all their gin and whisky.
