After the enormous success of 42Below - I thought I would trawl around the Internet looking for other makers of spirits in New Zealand.
I found a whiskey maker in Levin, and the infamous Purple Monkey Finger Vodka - but overall not really that much.
Southern Grain Spirits is a company based in Kaiapoi - near Christchurch. The labelling is a bit naff... probably just as good at 42Below - but I guess that marketing makes all the difference.
See the only remaining distillery in Australasia making Gin using traditional English methods used for hundreds of years. You will be amazed at the wide range of international quality spirits, liqueurs, cordials and beers. Interesting, fun and entertaining with the opportunity to sample some of your favourite products and a few new ones. Tea, coffee and snacks are also provided. Tours available:
Monday to Saturday,
between 10am and 8pm,
