Small Batch Artisan Botanical Gin – Kanuka, Mint & Elderflower Infused.
Woolshed is a London dry style gin where juniper will always be the hero. Pairing floral elderflowers with the earthy tones found in kanuka and the freshness of mint along with the traditional botanics like juniper, coriander and angelica root, gives this gin bold botanical notes that make you want another sip.
Through the sale of Woolshed Gin, $3 from every bottle is donated to local rural support organisation to support is rural mental health and wellbeing.
After outgrowing the 3 litre copper Alembic Still (Teddy) set up in a caravan, the workshop was revamped with a 40 litre copper alembic still from Portugal (Bruce). The vapours starts to infuse through the botanics, carrying the aromas along the copper pipes before cascading down through the condenser turning back into its liquid form. The gin which comes through is at roughly 80% ABV. This is blended with fresh spring water which bubbles up from the ground on the farm to bring it down to a very drinkable 42% ABV.
Mt Fyffe Distillery is a small batch artisan distillery on a sheep farm in Mt Fyffe, Kaikōura. Living in one of the most stunning places in New Zealand where the mountains meet the sea, Justine discovered a passion for foraging for interesting and unique botanicals that surround the farm. The Mt Fyffe gin blends have been influenced by the stories that surround them. Justine and her family are completely absorbed by the entire process from foraging for the botanics, creating each small batch gin with its own bespoke uniqueness through to hand bottling, labelling and creating each gift box.
