This Whisky was distilled in the South Island of New Zealand, on the site of the old distillery in Dunedin, pictured on our label. Its makers used the very finest NZ grown barleys. Snowmelt from the Southern Alps naturally filtered through to the upper catchment of the Taieri River, provided the purest of water.

History of the whisky, copied from the owners website.

In 1997 the last whisky distillery in New Zealand was closed down, and the hundreds of barrels of Cask Strength whisky auctioned off or mothballed. In 2010, we bought the last 80,000 litres in 443 barrels from what had previously been stored in an old airplane hangar. The whisky now resides in the towering seaside bonds store in Oamaru. These are exceptionally rare drams from what was once the world’s southern-most distillery.

We hope to start distilling again in the future, and are looking forward to seeing the industry flourish around the country yet again.
