Lighthouse Gin is made in Greytown in the Wairarapa.
According to those in the know Lighthouse - is a fantastic quality product that is just flying off shelves. This is great to see - nothing like a world class local product supported by locals.
Like South Gin - it has unusual botanicals such as Kawakawa (Kawakawa has an earthy - peppery/fruity flavour).
Lighthouse™ Gin is made by hand in the classic ‘distilled dry gin’ tradition, utilising nine botanicals in their natural state. Neil creates the gin in a 200-litre copper still, which he designed himself, and had specially built by local craftsmen at 2K Design in Masterton.
The Lighthouse brand was inspired by the spectacular Cape Palliser Lighthouse at the southernmost tip of the Wairarapa and the southernmost tip of the North Island of New Zealand.
