Tailored to your taste buds

Join us for Matahui Distillery's Gin Lab experience every Saturday and Sunday from 1-2.30pm, where you’ll delve into the secrets of what makes a great-tasting gin, sample over 20 different botanicals from our Flavour Library, and design your own gin recipe working with the flavours you love.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Perfecting Your Recipe

You'll kickstart your adventure by sampling Matahui’s signature Adventurer’s Gin. Delve into the craftsmanship behind its creation, learn what sets it apart, and uncover the secrets to crafting a great recipe that you can apply to your own creation.

Flavour Library Exploration

Guided by our team of master distillers, you will have the chance to sample over 20 individually distilled botanicals from our Flavour Library, the only one in New Zealand. Many of the botanicals you'll taste are grown on-site at Matahui Distillery in our budding permaculture garden.

Create Your Recipe

From citrus to spice, lemongrass to lavender, this exploration is designed to deepen your understanding of how each flavour features in a gin blend. Armed with this knowledge, you can then combine the flavours you enjoy the most, leading to your unique recipe.

Guided Gin Tasting

Relax after your Gin Lab experience at our Cellar Door, for a guided tasting while we blend your gin. Sample our range of small batch gins and liqueurs made on site in our micro-distillery. Once complete, you’ll be ready to take home your personalised 500ml bottle of gin, perfectly paired to your palate. Cheers!

CRAFT YOUR PERSONALISED GIN NOW

Our Gin experiences are sought-after with very small class sizes, so booking is essential. You can participate as many times as you'd like, allowing you to refine your recipe to perfection. We can't wait to share it with you.
