Fox River’s botanicals are wild foraged and locally sourced to create a clean, nuanced dry gin. Layers of rata and purple thistle flower, nasturtiums and wild fennel, seaweed and beach pebble are aged to capture the untamed West Coast spirit.
This extraordinary location is where Mark and Zoë spent their 10th wedding anniversary. They stayed at a glamping location and spent their days foraging for amazing botanicals. This small settlement is also the hometown of The Juniper Collective's founders grandmother. Our Nana, whose parents settled in Fox River from Ireland, grew up in this beautiful place adding extra significance for having this beautiful gin at our Gin Boutique.
Fox River’s wild botanicals are steeped three times before the rata and purple thistle flower, nasturtiums and wild fennel, seaweed and beach pebble are aged in French oak.
Limited edition, handmade regional gins, small-batched and crafted with ingredients from New Zealand’s remote locations.
ELSEWHERE is a two-person team dedicated to crafting very small batches of premium gin. Mark, who is also an experienced winemaker, distils the gin and Zoë looks after design, accounts and marketing. They usually forage for botanicals together – often while on holiday enjoying the natural environment with their family and friends – so they have a personal connection to the places on each label. This makes their gin totally unique and unlike anything else.
In capturing the taste and aroma of unique places, ELSEWHERE gin follows the winemaking concept of terroir. While they go back to their favourite places to gather botanicals to make further batches, they will express the character of different seasons and years, much like vintage wine. They will also make gins from new places they discover that really inspire them.
