Little River’s botanicals are wild foraged and locally sourced, then steeped three times to create a clean, nuanced dry gin. Pea-flower blue in the bottle, when combined with tonic this gin becomes the lavender blush of early mornings at Birdling’s Flat. Herbaceous and charismatic with chamomile, lemon thyme, rosemary and kanuka.
Little River is a slice of heaven. Nature is happy in these valleys, where a diverse array of native plants grow well. Many camping holidays here hold very sweet memories. Valmai at Phytofarm has very high quality botanicals, including lemon verbena which is part of our gin. Lastly, Birdling’s Flat, with its wild ocean starkness, breathes life into the region.
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, distills 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.
