Style - Contemporary (Dry)
700ml | 42% ABV
Juniper (Highlands, Macedonia), Kawakawa (Auckland), Pink Peppercorn (Peru) and others.
A warming touch of spice, a lingering herbal note of kawakawa, and with a strong juniper presence. Kawakawa provides its signature taste of strong herbal notes and peppery warmth on the palate to make for a unique, flavourful gin. Picked from the Peruvian pepper tree, Pink Peppercorn is distinctly unique, with a light floral quality, a hint of tart raspberry sweetness and a lingering spice. The delicate botanical adds warmth and balance to our gin and is a perfect match with kawakawa.
As a kiwi company, Kākāpō Distillery acknowledges that their understanding of kawakawa comes from mātauranga māori (Māori knowledge).
Created using traditional methods in a copper Alquitar still, Kākāpō Distillery’s gin is brought to life by New Zealand's native forests and the extensive variety of botanicals and flavours that are available at their fingertips.
Kākāpō Distillery was founded on three key ideas: a love for Aotearoa, a passion for its conservation, and a desire to make a damn good drop of gin. They believe that traceability is not only important for knowing exactly where their ingredients are coming from, but that it is vital for understanding their carbon footprint and achieving their mission to be as green as possible in every aspect of the business.
Kākāpō Distillery's unique take on a time old spirit provides an elegant and exciting tasting experience that continuously gives back to nature; through being eco-conscious at every step, as well as supporting the critically endangered Kākāpō and the awesome team at the Department of Conservation's Kākāpō Recovery.
