North Canterbury’s wild foraged and locally sourced botanicals are steeped three times to capture the fragrance of the open plains within a clean, nuanced dry gin. Bright clear flavours of orange blossom, kaffir lime, bay leaf, lavender, rose and olive are anchored with earthy seaweed sweetness from the cliffs of Taylor’s Mistake.
Mark is a winemaker in the North Canterbury region and this is where he first thought about making gin. This was the first gin they ever crafted and it has remained a strong favourite.
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.
