This contemporary gin is named after the ghost of a little girl who haunts the grounds at the Waikino Hotel. With the exception of the Juniper, Emily’s Garden Gin is crafted entirely from botanicals foraged or grown in the hotels grounds resulting in a unique and refreshing gin that is infused with garden herbs, kaffir lime, horopito and remu fronds. The combination of these ingredients creates a harmonious blend of flavours, with the herbal notes of the garden herbs perfectly complementing the bright and zesty taste of kaffir lime, while the remu fronds add a subtle touch of earthiness. The result is a gin that is perfect for those who appreciate a fresh and herbaceous twist on their classic gin.
Kaimai Brewing and Distilling started out as a hobby and grew into a passion. They say every brewer wants to grow up to be a distiller and this has certainly proved true with the owners – Wayne and Kathy Chowles. The journey started some years ago and over time, with many hours reading, learning and experimenting, they arrived at the point where they could call their work “fine spirits”.
Inspired by old stories of the gold mining era and Wayne’s background in the mining industry, they embarked on an adventure, to create a hand crafted/single batch gin which would celebrate the heritage of the area in which they live, the land, the people and the history of the Karangahake Gorge and surrounding areas. Their gin is proofed with pure artisan spring water and infused with a range of locally and internationally sourced botanicals which combine to create a truly unique flavour.
