Classic Cardrona Source mellowed in a buttery Domaine Rewa ex-Chardonnay cask from the biodynamic microvineyard French Potter in Central Otago. Tasting notes of lemon meringue, cut hay & yuzu. It is rich and luscious in the mouth, perfect for a twist on a G&T or a decadent 3 olive-martini.
Cardrona Distillery does not cut corners. The Distillery has designed its craft process around the deep single malt traditions, starting from scratch with malted barley to create a genuine artisan premium spirit, a rarity in the spirits industry. Every aspect of Cardrona’s products is of the highest quality, from the pure Cardrona Valley alpine water, the rich malted barley and the locally foraged ingredients to the hand picked oak casks from Spain and America. Cardrona Distillery’s spirits are distilled using copper stills and all natural ingredients. The still house is home to five stills and the distillation process is: Milling | Mashing | Fermenting | Distilling | Maturing | Bottling.
In early 2011, craftswoman, Desiree Reid-Whitaker, decided to pursue her dream of making a New Zealand single malt whisky that would stand tall on the international stage. She began researching distillation and the crafting of great spirits. The exquisite range of award winning whiskies, spirits and liqueurs produced at the Cardrona Distillery is the result of many years of study, planning and research. Creating the finest spirits with pure Alpine water sourced from the heart of Mount Cardrona, from New Zealand's Southern Alps, and locally foraged seasonal ingredients to produce an unparalleled signature taste. Cardrona Distillery is family owned and operated.
